I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, dead, and buried, the third day He rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of the God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic (universal) Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
Tradition has it that the Apostles Creed was actually written by the original Disciples. These same Disciples authored the Four Gospels, which are canonized, sacred, and inspired by the Holy Spirit.
It is generally understood that the Apostles met in the Upper Room and wrote the Apostles Creed as a statement of faith that would stand for all time; and as a standard so that once they separated to parts unknown to declare His greatness, thoughtless individuals would not attempt to split them on issues of doctrine.
Well that didn't last four hundred years. The Council of Nicaea (A.D. 325) changed it to what is now known as the Nicene Creed.
