With the annunciation of the Holy Spirit the Nicene Creed completes its Trinitarian formulation. But to understand the role of the Spirit in the Trinity we have to look back into the Creed. In doing so it will be come clear that the Holy Spirit isn’t a new phenomenon but an eternal participant with the Father and the Son in the creation, maintenance, and healing of the world.

Written in 325 CE, and amended in 381, the Nicene Creed has been the standard of orthodoxy since its origin. Outside of the Bible, it is the single most important text of the Christian faith. Unlike the Apostle’s Creed, which is a statement of an individual’s faith traditionally recited at their baptism, the Nicene Creed is a communal affirmation, and as such it is a proclamation of worship that unites the Church under one doctrine.
