FC: The Nicene Creed
1: The Nicene Creed was formulated in 325 AD at the First Council at Nicea. The Roman Emperor Constantine ordered the Council of Nicea to take place to combat Arianism. Arianism was caused by a man named Arius. Arius was a heresy, and believed in different things from the Christians. His beliefs began to spread and there was a lot of controversy so that’s when Constantine decided to gather a group of Church bishops and leaders at Nicea. From the Council of Nicea, the Nicene Creed was adopted to eliminate any confusion and controversy. | This Creed is important to the Christian community because it shows what we believe in. | About the Nicene Creed
