  Creed - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Christian mythology attributes this creed to all twelve Apostles as a joint composition, and assigns one phrase of the creed to each Apostle.
This attribution is unlikely, but the creed itself is quite old; it seems to have developed from a catechism used in the baptism of adults, and in that form can be traced as far back as the second century, see Old Roman Symbol.
The Apostles' Creed seems to have been formulated to resist Docetism and similar ideas associated with Gnosticism; it emphasizes the birth, physical death, and bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 Why Creeds Matter
The creeds lead from the first fragments confessing the faith of early Christians through the ecumenical councils, the doctrinal debates of both East and West in the Middle Ages, the vast multiplicity of Reformation confessions and catechisms, down to contemporary statements from new denominations, the Third World and ecumenical discussions.
It is now fashionable to argue that creeds should be less important than deeds and piety, and that formal confessions impose the will of the elite on ordinary folk.
Creeds and confessions offer answers to such questions: Here, people say, is what we believe to be the truth about things that matter ultimately.

Creeds seem dry and dusty in our digital age, but historically they have played an important role in the life of faith.
The ancient creed is a way of saying simply, when all other words fail, "I love you." Some contemporary creeds succeed in this effort, but many fail to say the faith in a way that unites the world church.
Creeds Protect Us Creeds are important not only because they articulate our personal experience of the risen Christ, but they also serve to unite the church by protecting believers from the tendency toward radical individualism or simply inventing our own faith.

 Planet Preterist - Why We Need Creeds
Creeds function the way a constitution functions in a political society--as a statement of shared principles and convictions, and a celebration of those convictions.
The creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord's Prayer was the core of the catechism.
Then why does the Masai creed mention that he "was always on safari doing good" or that "the hyenas didn't touch his body?" Evidently, the African Jesus was molded to fit the cultural characterstics of the African society.

 Why the Nicene Creed Matters by Luke Timothy Johnson--modernism Nicea -- Beliefnet.com
For Modernity, belief in a creed is a sign of intellectual failure.
Creeds also express convictions held by a group of people, and for intellectual elitists, the many is always a herd, and a herd will always believe what it is told.
If the Christian creed has been shown to be false, and even its adherents know that it is false, their willing submission to its herd mentality must come from intellectual laziness or psychological weakness.

The Apostles' Creed, in Latin Symbolum Apostolorum, is an affirmation of faith used in most Christian churches in the West.
The creed, as most Christians know it today, evolved from a 2nd century baptismal creed used in Rome and answered the challenge of gnosticism by emphasizing the human nature and corporal body of Jesus.
The creed was established as part of the eucharistic liturgy during the 5th century.

I recently came across a creed written by missionaries to the Masai tribe in Africa.
The Masai creed is an illustration of the adaptability of Christianity.
Paul can tell first-century Greeks that Jesus “went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil” and the Masai can affirm that he “left his home and was always on safari doing good, curing people by the power of God” and nothing is lost in the translation.

Donovan explains that among the Masai, a handful of grass was shared as a sign of peace, and if such a tuft of grass was shared during an argument, it was understood that the disagreement would not lead to violence.
If instead we recognized that God is always giving all of Godself to us, then we would know how to share the Eucharist humbly with anyone who comes to our communities in peace and fellowship.
On a related note, the Masai Creed is one of the most beautiful in all of Christendom.
