This particular creed was developed between the 2nd and 9th centuries.

It is used by a number of Christian denominations for both liturgical and catechetical purposes, most visibly by liturgical churches of Western Christian tradition, including the Latin Church of the Catholic Church, Lutheranism, Anglicanism, and Western Rite Orthodoxy.

It is also used by Presbyterians, Methodists, and Congregationalists.

Throughout its history, Christianity has weathered schisms and theological disputes that have resulted in many distinct churches and denominations.

Worldwide, the three largest branches of Christianity are the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the various denominations of Protestantism.

Christianity is an Abrahamic religion that began as a Second Temple Judaic sect in the mid-1st century.

Originating in Judea, it quickly spread to Europe, Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, Transcaucasia, Egypt, Ethiopia, and India, and by the end of the 4th century had become the official state church of the Roman Empire.

Each of the doctrines found in this creed can be traced to statements current in the apostolic period.
