Theology Word of the Week: Nicene Creed

Nicene Creed. Originally the theological confession resulting from the first Council of Nicaea (a.d. 325), convened by the emperor Constantine to resolve church divisions related to the Arian controversy (see Arianism). The creed reflects the teaching that the Son is of one substance with the Father (see homoousios). The Nicene Creed recited in churches today resembles the original, but having been revamped at the Council of Constantinople (a.d. 381), the current version is longer and excludes certain original phrases.
