THE CREED OF NICAEA - AGREED AT THE COUNCIL IN 325
On this page of the Early Church Texts website the Latin and Greek texts below have links to online dictionaries.
The full version of the Early Church Texts website 1) is
like an encyclopedia of the first five centuries of Church history; 2) is
a "Reader" in Early Church history and theology, with carefully selected
and presented extracts from Greek and Latin texts, with English
translations alongside; 3) gives easy access to a large number of complete Greek and Latin early Christian texts (many with the
facility for viewing a translation alongside), including
virtually all of the Greek and Latin texts from the first five centuries contained
in the Migne Patrologiae Cursus Completus volumes (scanned versions
at sites like Google Books and archive.org). There is an
index of commentaries, homilies etc. by biblical book.

Πιστεύομεν εἰς ἕνα Θεὸν Πατέρα παντοκράτορα
believe in one God,
that is, from the substance of the Father,
God from God,
light from light,
true God from true God,
begotten not made,
of one substance with the Father,
through Whom all things came into being,
things in heaven and things on earth,
Who because of us men and because of our salvation came down,
and became incarnate
and became man,
and rose again on the third day,
and ascended to the heavens,
and will come to judge the living and dead,
And in the Holy Spirit.
But as for those who say, There was when He was not,
and, Before being born He was not,
and that He came into existence out of nothing,
or who assert that the Son of God is of a different hypostasis or substance,
or is subject to alteration or change
- these the Catholic and apostolic Church anathematizes.
