The unity of the Godhead cannot be questioned. God does not consist of parts. He is one. But Scripture reveals that there are, in that one divine essence, three eternal distinctions.
The key to the Trinity discussion is
understanding and admitting that it is a mystery. Once we rightly arrive at the conclusion that the Trinity is
ultimately incomprehensible to the finite human mind, we can then find a biblically balanced position. All of
the errors and heresies regarding the Trinity are due to individuals trying to explain the unexplainable and
fathom the unfathomable. A finite human being trying to understand an infinite God is like an amoeba trying to
understand quantum physics.
As Christians and Baptist, we believe in the Trinity - God as 3 persons in one.
Our God is our Father God, the son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit all rolled
in one. There is only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual,
and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe.
He is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. It is to Him that we owe
the highest love, reverence, and obedience. The eternal God reveals Himself to
us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but
without division of nature, essence or being. In the Bible, we are told that we
have been created by the Triunal God (the Trinity) because in Genesis 1:26, the
Bible reads "Then God said, let us make man in our image, in our likeness and
let them rule over the fish of the se and the birds of the air, over the
livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the
God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures,
and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His
grace. He is all powerful, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to
those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly
in His attitude toward all men.
Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation in human flesh as Jesus
Christ, he was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus
perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself the demands and
necessities of human nature and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet
without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His
death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was
raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the
person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is
now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, partaking of
the nature of God and of man, and in whose Person is effected the reconciliation
between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to
consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living
and ever present Lord.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men to write the
Scriptures. Through illumination He enables men to understand truth. He exalts
Christ. He convicts us of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. He calls men to
the Savior, and effects regeneration. He cultivates Christian character,
comforts believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God
through His church. He seals the believer unto the day of final redemption. His
presence in the Christian is the assurance of God to bring the believer into the
fullness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and empowers the believer and
the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
