THE NICENE CREED - AGREED AT THE COUNCIL OF CONSTANTINOPLE IN 381
The Greek and Latin texts of the "Nicene" creed are given below with an English translation. Elsewhere on the Early Church Texts website (click here) the Latin and Greek texts below have links to online dictionaries and more information about where the texts are taken from.
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. There is an
index of commentaries, homilies etc. by biblical book.

Πιστεύομεν εἰς ἕνα Θεὸν Πατέρα παντοκράτορα
We believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible;
And in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only begotten Son of God,
begotten from the Father before all ages,
light from light,
true God from true God,
begotten not made,
of one substance with the Father,
through Whom all things came into existence,
Who because of us men and because of our salvation came down from the heavens,
and was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
and became man,
and was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate,
and suffered and was buried,
and rose again on the third day according to the Scriptures
and ascended to heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father,
and will come again with glory to judge living and dead,
of Whose kingdom there will be no end;
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and life-giver,
Who proceeds from the Father,
Who with the Father and the Son is together worshipped and together glorified,
Who spoke through the prophets;
in one holy Catholic and apostolic Church.
We confess one baptism to the remission of sins;
we look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen
