The Nicene Creed: A Brief Introduction
Written in 325 CE, and amended in 381, the Nicene Creed has been the standard of orthodoxy since its origin. Outside of the Bible, it is the single most important text of the Christian faith. Unlike the Apostle’s Creed, which is a statement of an individual’s faith traditionally recited at their baptism, the Nicene Creed is a communal affirmation, and as such it is a proclamation of worship that unites the Church under one doctrine.
