The Church has the authority to amend the Creed.
The Creed itself is not a dogma, although it certainly refers to some
teachings which are dogmas. The Creed need not contain every
dogma of the Church.

The Universal Church is the whole Church, as opposed to a particular
diocese or religious order or Rite.
