The Apostles' Creed (Latin: Symbolum Apostolorum or Symbolum Apostolicum), sometimes entitled Symbol of the Apostles, is an early statement of Christian belief—a creed or "symbol". It is widely used by a number of Christian denominations for both liturgical and catechetical purposes, most visibly by liturgical Churches of Western tradition, including the Catholic Church, Lutheranism and.

Ignatius Theophorus, Bishop of Antioch, who was rumored to have been the little child placed among the apostles by our Lord (Matt. ), wrote a series of letters to Churches while on his way to Rome.

The Nicene Creed was expanded and finalized at the Council of Constantinople in to include homoousios for the Holy Spirit as well, by quoting John , "the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father," to form the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed (still called the Nicene Creed). The Apostles' and Nicene Creeds are important to the Tradition. From the time of the apostles onward, the church has taken its stand on the phrase, Credo in Deum Patrem Omnipotentem: I believe in God, the Father Almighty.

God from God. The Apostles’ Creed was not written by the apostles. The creed is the oldest, simplest, and least developed creed of the Christian church. While Christianity as a religion is greatly divided, the Apostles' Creed affirms the common heritage and basic beliefs that unite Christians around the world and throughout history.
