Scriptures and the Nicene Creed

As promised, I have written scriptures to go along with different phrases of the Nicene Creed. There are certainly more scriptures that could go with each, but this is a start if you want to explore the scriptural basis of the Creed. Enjoy!

We believe in one God, (Isaiah 45: 5-6)
The Father, the Almighty (Romans 8:15)
maker of heaven and earth (Genesis 1:1)
of all that is, visible and invisible (Col. 1:16)
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, (Matthew 3:17)
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God, (John 1: 4,9)
begotten, not made, (Hebrews 1:5, 5:5)
of one Being with the Father; (John 10:30) through him all things were made. (John 1:3) For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, (John 3:16) was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and was made man.(Luke 1:31-35) For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; (Matthew 27:2) he suffered death and was buried. (Matthew 27: 35-50, 57-61) On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; (John 20:1-18)
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. (Mark 16:19) He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, (2 Timothy 4:1) and his kingdom will have no end. (Luke 1:32-33)
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]. (John 15:26) who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, (John 4:23-24)
who has spoken through the prophets. (Acts 2:17)
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. (Ephesians 4:3-6, Galatians 3:28)
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. (Ephesians 4:5 Acts 2:38)
We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen. (1 Corinthians 15:20-24)
