In Article IX of our Confession of Faith (also known as the Belgic Confession) three writings, dating from the first centuries of the Christian Church, are named as creeds which "we do willingly receive." They are: the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. The adoption of this Confession of Faith by the Reformed churches meeting at the Synod of Dort in the Netherlands in 1618-19, constituted an implicit approval of the three Creeds mentioned above. They are called Ecumenical Creeds (general, universal) because they have been approved and adopted by nearly all of the churches of Christendom.
