Faith of the Universal Syrian Orthodox Church - II

Ecumenical Synods and Nicene Creed

The Syrian Orthodox church accepts only three Ecumenical Synods as the universal Synods.

These are: Nicea (A.D.325), Constantinople (A.D. 381) and Ephesus (A. D. 431).

The Church meticulously observe all faith declaration of the Nicean Creed. (The western church at a later stage appended a statement to this creed attributing the Holy Ghost to be originating from the Son also, (Filioque) which the Syrian Orthodox church do not accept.)

The Syrian Orthodox church believes that Jesus Christ is one Person out of two natures, namely human and divine. He is perfect man and perfect God.
