Theology Statement

The Order of Christian Knights recognizes the authority of God and the Bible as His infallible revelation to mankind during the Age of Grace. The Bible, inspired by God and penned by men, is the standard by which truth must be judged. The Bible is complex but the Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple. As such, all Christians accept certain core truths, but may be at different places in their understanding of the Faith.

The Order of Christian Knights uses the Nicene Creed as its theology statement. The first version of the Nicene Creed was written in 325 AD at the First Ecumenical Council of Nicea, which confirmed the deity of Jesus Christ, and was revised in 381 AD at the First Ecumenical Council of Constantinople, which confirmed the deity of the Holy Spirit.

The Nicene Creed is an excellent tool for simplifying the heart of the Gospel message while maintaining the integrity of the essential elements of the Christian faith. The Nicene Creed can be used as a test of true Christian Faith, because those who have submitted their lives to the LORD Jesus Christ will affirm the Creed in their heart, while anyone who is not walking in the Faith will find themselves antagonized by it.

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father.  Through him all things were made.  For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.  For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.  On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.  He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father.  With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.  We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.  We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.  We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.  Amen.
