Nicene Creed

The Nicene Creed is a Symbol of faith widely used in Christian liturgy. It is called Nicene because it was originally adopted in the city of Nicaea (present-day Iznik, Turkey) by the First Council of Nicaea in 325.

The main significance of the Nicene Creed was that it established much of what is now known as orthodox Christian teaching on the subject of God and the Trinity. It remains the only statement of faith that is accepted by all major parts of the Christian faith.
