God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
GOD THE FATHER
The first person of the Trinity is the one Jesus revealed to us as the Father. God is not some remote, unknowable spiritual entity. Rather God is our loving, powerful heavenly Father.
GOD THE SON
We affirm that Jesus of Nazareth, though born of a woman, was more than a human being; he was actually God's Son and thus also God himself. As the Christ, Jesus fulfilled all the Old Testament prophecies about a Messiah who would redeem God's people. After his earthly work of redemption was finished, Jesus took his place in heaven as Lord of all things. He will come again to make all things new.
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
When Jesus ascended bodily to heaven, he promised his disciples a comforter, a source of power; one that would lead them into all truth. This gift was the Holy Spirit. Ever since then, the Holy Spirit has dwelled in and empowered God's people. The Holy Spirit is the presence and power of God with us here and now, leading the church, uniting Gods people, applying God's forgiveness to our broken lives, speaking to us, and spurring us individually and communally to godly living.
