Who Wrote the Apostles Creed?

Answer

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. However, the true origins of the creed is not precisely known but it is dated circa 300 A.D. It quickly grew in stature and has become the most popular creed used by Western Christians, because of it's testimony in the simplicity of the essential beliefs, which the early Christian Church could readily identify with.
