Creeds, as defined by the Episcopal Church, are statements of our basic beliefs about God. The term comes from the Latin credo, meaning I believe.
The Episcopal Church has two foundational creeds that we use during worship: the Apostles’ Creed used at baptism and daily worship, and the Nicene Creed used at communion. In reciting and affirming these creeds, we join Christians across the world and throughout the ages in affirming our faith in the one God who created us, redeemed us, and sanctifies us.
