There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent,spiritual,and personal being, the
Creator,Redeemer,Preserver and Ruler of the universe.God is infinite in holiness and all other
perfections.God is all powerful and all knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all
things,past,present and future,including the future decisions of His free creatures.The eternal triune God
reveals himself as Father,Son and Holy Spirit,with distict personal attributes,but without division of
nature,essence or being.
God the Father
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 knowing, all loving and all
wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
God the Son
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation, 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 human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind
yet without sin. He honored by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross He
made provision for the redemption of humanity 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 the Father where He is the One
Mediator, fully God, fully man, 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.
God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He inspired holy men of old to write the Scriptures. Through
illumination He enables believers to understand truth. He exalts Christ.He convicts men of sin, of
righteousness, and of judgement. He calls people to the saviour, and effects regeneration. At the moment
of regeneration, the Holy Spirit baptizes every believer into the Body of Christ. 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 guarantee that
God will 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.
Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. God created them male and female as the
crowning work of His creation. The gift of gender is part of the goodness of God's creation. In the
beginning, man was innocent of sin and was endowed by his Creator with freedom of choice. By his free
choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan
man transgressed the command of God, and fell from his original innocence whereby his posterity inherits
a nature and an environment inclined toward sin. Therefore, as soon as they are capable of moral
action, all people become transgressors and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring a person into His holy fellowship and to fulfill the creative purposes of God.
Salvation involves the redemption of the whole person, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus
Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. Salvation is by faith alone through Christ alone, and is a gift of God (Eph 2:8-9). Those who have obtained salvation are eternally secure (John 10:28), and are promised eternity in heaven when they die.
