The Syriac Orthodox Faith
The faith of the Syriac Orthodox Church concludes faith in Holy Trinity, in the incarnation of the Son of God, a divine origin of traditions in Holy Bible, in Nicene Creed, in the seven sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation/Mooron, Holy Eucharist, Penance, Ordination, Matrimony, Unction of the sick) Intercession of St. Mary and Saints, Prayer for the departed, prayers, fasting, lent, Apostolic Succession of St. Peter through the Throne of Antioch. The church approved the first three ecumenical councils – Nicea, Constantinople and Ephesus. The Nicene Creed is the official creed of the Syrian Orthodox Church.
Holy Qurbana (Eucharist) is the queen of all sacraments according to the Syriac Orthodox Church tradition. To perform the seven sacraments the Syriac Orthodox Church has fixed written prayers and symbolic signs. The prayers used in the sacraments and all other liturgies are fully based on the Holy Bible and filled with theological concepts.
THE NICENE CREED
We believe in One True 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 the Father before all worlds, light of light, very God of very God, begotten, not made; being of the same substance with the Father, and by whom all things were made; who for us and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate of Holy Virgin Mother of God by the Holy Ghost, and became man and was crucified for us in the days of Pontius Pilate and suffered and died and buried, and the third day rose again, according to His will and ascended into heaven and sat on the right hand of the Father and shall come again in His great glory to judge the quick and the dead, whose kingdom shall never end.
And in the one living Holy Spirit, the life-giving lord of all, who proceeds from the Father, and who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the Prophets and the Apostles.
And in the one, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church; and we acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins; and the look for the resurrection of the dead. and in the new life in the world to come. Amen
