A creed is a short form of the chief religious truths to be believed. 

Say the Apostles Creed.

 I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;  Who was conceived of the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary,  suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified; died and was buried;  He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead;  He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty,  from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Ghost;  the Holy Catholic Church; the communion of saints;  the forgiveness of sins;  the resurrection of the body;  and life everlasting. Amen. 

Why is this creed called the Apostles' Creed?

This creed is called the Apostles' Creed, because it has come down to us from the Apostles.
