What Do Catholics Believe?

The easiest way to answer this question is by reciting our profession of faith.  All Catholics should know and understand each part of the creed.

The Nicene Creed, our Profession of Faith,

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation, he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy Catholic (Catholic = Universal)  and Apostolic Church (According to the doctrines of the apostles; delivered or taught by the apostles; as, apostolic faith or practice.)

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.

If you understand the Creed you understand the basic teachings of the faith.  This is the foundation of the Church teaching.

The Catholic Church is indefectible, having no flaw or defect, in terms of its teaching what Christ said and what He meant about faith and morality. The Church has been revealed by Christ and the Holy Spirit the teachings of faith and morality.

This is why all teachings in regards to the faith can NEVER be changed and NEVER has changed.  God does not change his mind because it is 21st century.  The profession of faith stated above was passed on to the Apostles by Jesus Christ.  On Pentecost Sunday, the Holy Spirit filled the Apostles with the Spirit and enabled them to proclaim that faith.  As Jesus said in Matthew 16:17-19, “And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.  I will give you the keys to the kingdom of Heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

This is what Catholics believe.

    Thank you for this Article. And please keep on poistng more because they are really helpful.I myself have my cross, and still carrying it, being a gay and catholic myself I carry this everyday, will the wrath of God just be upon me. I dont know. I think the cross is there, and it has to be present in our life because only in our suffering to we meet our lord and experience his grace.When I met this guy (Who i will call would be my perpetual friend) I just thought I have to choose either be with a guy and throw away my religion or stay single and devoted to God. and at that point I chose this guy and i stopped going to church cause I dont want to receive communion in a state of sin.I’m 22 years old and I caught HIV the beginning of this year and it was a burden to me.He accepted me for who I am and what I have, and I though he was an atheist, only to find out he was also a devout catholic like myself.He told me we will pray to God about my disease, and to my shock we went to church together (and prayed about it) and suddenly I’m faced with a dilemma, should I carry this cross? (Having a boyfriend while being catholic) or just go the easy way.until now this cross I carry is getting heavier everyday. but I know God has a plan he yet to reveal.Him and Me staying as a catholic we will forever be barred to receive the holy communion, I have prayed many times that God would remove the Gay in me. I feel fortified but the closer I get to God the stronger I get pulled to being more gay.I havent read all your articles but would lover to read some more and hopefully you’ll make an article about having or not having a boyfriend. I’m very confused but I look up high to God for somoe answers and I came across your blog searching for Gay and Catholic
