You do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Almighty, thus, you will say that Revelation 1:8 is speaking of the Father (though it's actually speaking of Jesus Christ).

You'll certainly say, 'no.' So then in Revelation 3:14 when Christ is called the 'Beginning,' does that mean that He is created?

Revelation 3:14-15, states, “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this: ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot.’”

‘Beginning’ here, translates from the Greek word ‘arche,’ meaning ‘the origin,’ ‘the active cause,’ ‘that by which anything begins to be,’ ‘leader,’ ‘the person or thing that commences,’ ‘magistracy,’ ‘rule.’ Revelation 3:14 does not in anyway teach that Christ was created. Ironically, it teaches that He is the ‘active cause,’ ‘the origin’ of all creation, that He is the Creator, the source of all things, the Beginning of all things.
