Statement of Faith: The Godhead
We believe there is but one true and living God, who is everlasting, infinite in power, wisdom and goodness; that He is the Creator of all things, visible and invisible, and Preserver of all things (Romans 1:20; Colossians 1:16). In the unity of this Godhead, there are three persons of one individual essence, who are co-equal, co-existent and co-eternal; namely, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost (Matthew 3:16, 17; 28:18, 19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 1:1,2, 18; 10:33; 14:26; 15:26; Philippians 2:6; Hebrews 9:14).
The Son is the eternally begotten of the Father, and accepted earthly limitations for the purpose of incarnation, being true God and true man; conceived by the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the just for the unjust as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on High as our great High Priest, and He will return again to establish His Kingdom of righteousness and justice.
The Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, Executive of the Godhead on earth, the Comforter sent by the Lord Jesus Christ to indwell, to guide and to teach the believer, and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.
Biblical Background: We call the Godhead, The Trinity: The Doctrine of the Trinity or Tri-unity is that in one God there are three distinct persons, the Father, the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit. They are all of the same substance (essence), and they are co-equal and co-eternal.
The Trinity speaks to unity: The word of God says that: “Then God said, Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. (Gen 1:26)
The distinction of the Trinity: Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
Then Jesus, when he was baptized, came up from the water, and behold, the heavens opened up and He saw the Spirit of God descend like a dove …. A voice from heaven saying this is my beloved son.
