The Nicene Creed
The development of this creed began with the ecumenical
Council of Nicea, 325 AD. The creed was principally written
in opposition to the heretic, Arius, who taught that Jesus was
a creature made by God not wholly equal to the Father.
The Creed in its final form was a product of the Council of
Constantinople, 381 AD.
