Sunday of the Holy Trinity, Part V

Athanasian Creed, Part V

Furthermore it is necessary
to everlasting salvation
that he also believe rightly
the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ.

For the right faith is
that we believe and confess
that our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Son of God,
is God and man.

God of the substance of the Father,
begotten before the worlds;
and man of substance of His mother,
born in the world.

Perfect God and perfect man,
of a reasonable soul
and human flesh subsisting.

Equal to the Father
as touching His Godhead,
and inferior to the Father
as touching His manhood.

Who, although He is God and man,
yet He is not two, but one Christ.

One, not by conversion
of the Godhead into flesh,
but by taking of that manhood into God.

One altogether,
not by confusion of substance,
but by unity of person.

Of The Father's Love Begotten
