What we believe

What we believe at the Catholic Diocese Klerksdorp

We adhere to the Nicene Creed which states:

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible
We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and became man, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
He was also crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered death and was buried.
And He rose again on the third day, according to the scriptures.
And He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father.
And He will come again with glory, to judge the living and the dead, and of His kingdom there will be no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who together with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified,
Who spoke through the prophets.
We believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
We profess one baptism for the remission of sins.
We expect the resurrection of the dead;
and the life of the world to come.
