THE TRIUNE GODHEAD
We believe the Lord our God is the one and only living and true God, existing eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He exists in perfect unity and is revealed to every creature in all of His creation through His divine attributes so that all know His existence. He is infinite, infallible, invariant, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, omnibenevolent, holy, just, and merciful.
God the Father
We believe the Father to be the first of the three persons in the Trinity; Creator of the heaven and earth. He is the head (covering and authority) over the Son and the Spirit.
God the Son (Jesus)
We believe the Son to be the second of the three persons in the Trinity. He is the one and only begotten Son of God, the Prince of Peace, and the prophesied messiah. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit born to a virgin encompassing both the nature of God and the flesh of man to take on the wrath of God we deserve as a ransom for our sin so we might be saved. And in so doing, He defeated death and the grave, rising three days after His execution on a crucifix. Now, He is our High Priest through whom we have the only available access to the Father.
God the Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third of the three persons in the Trinity. He is the Spirit of Truth, who inspired the writers of Scripture, convicts men of sin, regenerates, indwells, baptizes, seals, and sets believers apart to a holy life, who He keeps and empowers day by day. We believe that He is the Teacher of the Word of God through which He guides us in our daily lives. He calls, commissions, and sanctifies, producing within the believer evidence of their discipleship in how they love God and love one another.
We deny anti-trinitarian ontological theories of God; including modalism, binitarianism, unitarianism, and polytheism. We further deny axiological theories which diminish any one of God’s divine attributes; including deism and anthropomorphism.
