The Celtic Church of Permaria is a self-declared Independent Catholic Church founded in the Principality of Permaria in 2022. Its adherents practice a unique form of Celtic Christianity commonly known as "Permarian Christianity", the unofficial state religion of Permaria.
While the church identifies as Catholic, it is not currently in communion with the Holy See, and its influence is primarily limited to subjects of Permaria. Members of the Celtic Church of Permaria adhere to the teachings of traditional Catholic theology, but with distinctive rites and practices common during the early medieval period in Gaelic Ireland. An unusual aspect of Permarian Christianity is the inclusion of specific Pagan beliefs, such as the celebration of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals - Samhain, Imbolc, Beltane and Lughnasadh.
The Nicene Creed is the defining profession of faith of the Celtic Church of Permaria. Reciting the creed is required for those assuming leadership roles within the church. The traditional reading of the Nicene Creed is as follows:
I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day 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.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
