The Nicene Creed is the creed or profession of faith (Greek: Template:Lang) that is most widely used in Christian liturgy. It is called Nicene (Template:PronEng) because, in its original form, it was adopted in the city of Nicaea by the first ecumenical council, which met there in 325.
It is given high importance in the Eastern Orthodox Church, Assyrian Church of the East, Oriental Orthodox churches, the Roman Catholic Church, including the Eastern Catholic Churches, the Old Catholic Church and its offshoots, the Lutheran Church, the Anglican Communion, and almost all branches of Protestantism, including the Reformed churches, the Presbyterian Church, and the Methodist Church.
