Nicene Creed
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A creed that was the result of the Council of Nicaea in ad 325. While early forms of the Apostles’ Creed may have predated it, this was the first creed to be officially recognized by an ecumenical council. It was later revised at the Council of Constantinople in 381, and this revised version is sometimes referred to as the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed, but more commonly is simply called the Nicene Creed.
