Statement of Faith

Volunteers serving in regular ongoing opportunities must affirm our Statement of Faith.


Dream Centers recognizes that not all volunteers will subscribe to their Statement of Faith.

Those who serve in any form of leadership capacity must affirm our Statement of Faith (Nicene

Creed). Those who serve in a support role should likewise affirm our Statement of Faith.


However, we recognize there will be individuals who volunteer for short-term projects (e.g.,

special assignments), or serve in a minimal impact assignment (e.g., painting, gardening,

maintenance repair) that may not hold to our Statement of Faith. As such these individuals do

not represent the Dream Centers and are limited in their ability to serve in any responsibility

that would reflect our values, beliefs, or priorities.


Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, 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, of one

Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came

down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,

and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and

was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with 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].1 With the Father and the Son he is

worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic

and apostolic Church. 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. Amen.

1. Early versions of the Nicene Creed do not contain the phrase “and the Son.” 2. Or “universal.”
