Books; Creeds. The Nicene Creed "In one of the quirks of church history, the "Nicene Creed" used in church hymnals and liturgies is a different creed from the one accepted at Nicaea. Eastern Orthodox, Protestant, and Roman Catholic churches. The Eastern Orthodox Church accepts the Nicene Creed, but does not use the Apostles' Creed or the Athanasian Creed. A creed by definition is a summary or statement of what one believes. It originates from the Latin credo meaning "I believe". The purpose of a creed is to act as a yardstick of correct belief.

We believe in God, Creator of the world; and in Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of creation. We believe in the Holy Spirit, through whom we acknowledge God’s gifts, . The first creeds of the Christian Church are called ecumenical (or universal) creeds because they were widely used before the Church permanently spilt into Eastern (Orthodox) and Western (Roman) factions in AD However, this is a term that is primarily used in the Western branches of the Church.

It summarizes and preserves the over 2,year-old core beliefs of Christianity, especially regarding the nature of Christ, the Trinity and the Church. Believers Eastern Church affirms the Nicene Creed as the official statement of faith for our church. It is confessed by the faithful as part of our Divine Liturgy.   There was not just one reason for the splitting of the medieval Christian church, but a large contributing factor in the “Great Schism” of , which divided the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church, was the Nicene Creed. More specifically, there was one point of contention with the Nicene Creed: the Holy Trinity.
