The earliest Christian creeds include the Apostle's Creed, the Creed of Nicaea, and the Creed of Jerusalem. The Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed and the Chalcedonian Creed were also among the earliest Christian creeds.
The Apostle's Creed was established as early as 180 A.D. by Roman Christians. This creed is accepted by most Western Christian denominations. The Creed of Nicaea, as approved by the Nicene council in 325 A.D. was created by the First Ecumenical Council of Nicaea under the order of emperor Constantine. It was expanded in 381 A.D. to become the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed, which has since been recognized by nearly all Christian denominations.
