The below section was compiled from Philip Schaff’s Book on Creeds of Christendom, with a History and Critical notes. Volume I. The History of Creeds. The Nicene Creed is one of the most famous and influential creeds in the history of the church, because it settled the question of how Christians can worship one God and also claim that this God is three persons.
