The Creed (Confession of Faith) is an authoritative formulation of the beliefs of the Christian religion. Jesus Christ gave the first creed to His disciples before His Ascension into heaven: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:19–20). The Creed was compiled and confirmed at the Council of Nicaea (325) and extended at the Council of Constantinople (381).
