The Nicene Creed (AD 325)
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,
Begotten of His Father before all worlds
God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God,
begotten, not make, being of one substance with the Father,
by whom all things were made.
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary, and was made man
And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate.
He suffered and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures
and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father.
And He will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead,
and whose kingdom will have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life,
Who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets.
And I believe in one holy and apostolic Church,
I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins,
and I look for the resurrection of the Dead and the life of the world to come.
Sola Scriptura – Scripture alone is the inerrant Word of God
“We accept the Scriptures as an all-sufficient and infallible rule of faith and practice, and insist upon the absolute inerrancy and sole authority of the Word of God.
We recognize at this point no room for division, either of practice or belief, or even sentiment. More and more we must come to feel as the deepest and mightiest power of our conviction that a “thus saith the Lord” is the end of all controversy.”

I’ll work on putting things in my own words.
