The Creed

“When we of the Orthodox Catholic Religion speak of the Creed, we mean that statement of belief which we recite at the Liturgy just before the beginning of the Anaphora (the heart of the Liturgy). The authorization of this Creed is ascribed to two Ecumenical Councils: the First Council, which met at Nicaea in 325; and the Second Council, which met at Constantinople in 381. The part ascribed to the Second Council consists of the teaching about the Holy Spirit: His Personality, Eternity, Divinity, Operations, and Procession. Because of the Creed’s ascription to two Councils, it is sometimes called the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed; but it is also known as the Constantinopolitan Creed, and best known, as well as most commonly referred to, as the Nicene Creed.”
