Trinity

We believe in one God, Who is sovereign, righteous, just, eternal, love, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, immutable, veracious, merciful, good, infinite, and gracious in His essence. He exists in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. All three persons of the Godhead are co-equal and co-eternal and co-infinite. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 5:3–5; John 10:30; Psalm 22:1; Matthew 3:16; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Genesis 48:15–16, 2 Samuel 23:2-3; Genesis 1:26.)

God the Father

We believe that God the Father is the first person of the Godhead. He is the Father, architect, and planner of all creation (Deuteronomy 32:6; Malachi 2:10; Isaiah 45:11-12; Jeremiah 32:17; Acts 17:24). He is the Father of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ (Psalm 103:13; Galatians 3:26) but not the Father of unbelievers (John 8:42-44).

The relationship between God the Father and God the Son did not have a beginning but has existed from eternity past. The Father's character is revealed to us in the person of Christ (John 8:58; 17:5, 24; 20:17). The Father and the Son are co-equal and co-eternal in essence. The Son voluntarily submitted Himself to the Father's plan so there could be a savior for mankind (1 Corinthians 8:6). The Father is the Supreme Person of the universe (Hebrews 6:13). He has absolute will and does whatever He pleases (Isaiah 55:11, 56:4, 42:21, Psalm 115:3, 135:6, 1 Corinthians 1:21; Colossians 1:19; Hebrews 11:5; Ephesians 1:5, 9).

It pleased the Father to send the Son to die as a spiritual substitute for the sins of the human race (John 3:16–18). The Father was propitiated by the Son's impeccable sacrifice on the cross (Romans 3:25). Those who accept the Son and His work on their behalf enter into the family of God at the instant of faith in Christ. Through this the Father brings many sons into glory and glorifies the Godhead (Romans 8:14, 19; Galatians 4:5–6, Hebrews 2:10; 1 John 3:2).

God the Son

We believe that God the Son is co-equal, co-eternal, and co-infinite with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit; He possesses the same divine attributes as the Father and the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Second Person of the Trinity, the Son, agreed to the incarnation in order to glorify the Father and redeem mankind from the slave market of sin. The Son (undiminished Deity) united with perfect humanity (Hebrews 10:5) to become Jesus of Nazareth (Matthew 1:21–25). The humanity of Jesus Christ was concieved by God the Holy Spirit when the Spirit enabled the virgin Mary to conceive apart from procreation (Luke 1:35). His conception was supernatural and thus Jesus did not have a human father. Due to this He did not possess Adam's sinful nature and did not receive the imputation of Adam's original sin. The Son's nature was such that He was true, sinless humanity and undiminished deity united in one person forever (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18–25; Colossians 2:9; Philippians 2:5–9). We believe that He voluntarily restricted the independent use of His divine attributes while on earth in order to rely strictly upon the Holy Spirit's power for His spiritual life and power for some miracles. In this way He was victorious over Satan and the world system using the Spirit's power in order to defeat His enemies and show us how we should live by means of the Spirit. Thus he set the precedent for the unique spiritual life of the Church Age.

Jesus is the One and only Savior of the world and to gain eternal life one must place their faith alone in Him alone for salvation (Acts 4:12; 16:31; John 3:16, 36).

God the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is co-equal and co-eternal and co-infinite with the Father and the Son. As God He possesses the same divine attributes as the Father and the Son. His ministry is to convict the world concerning the sin of unbelief, the absolute righteousness of God, and the judgment of Christ as our substitute (John 16:8–11). The Spirit is the agent of regeneration, sanctification, and comfort to those who believe in Jesus Christ (John 14:26). The Holy Spirit is a person just as the Father and Son are persons. He indwells all believers of the present church age. By Him all believers are baptized into the body of Christ and He seals them until the day of redemption. It is the duty of every believer to be filled with the Spirit through confession of sin (1 John 1:9) and thus fulfill the command to be "filled with the Spirit" (Ephesians 5:18) and "walk by the Spirit" (Galatians 5:16).
