The gathering of the church leaders in the early centuries to discuss major theological issues for the purpose of coming to consensus on what the church should believe. The Council of Nicea (A.D. 325) met primarily to resolve the debate on Arianism (the teaching that denied Christ’s deity) and concluded with the formulation of the anti-Arian Nicene Creed.
