Doctrine of God
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” (Deut. 6:4,5 NIV).
We believe God is the sovereign creator of heaven and earth (Gen. 1:1), One in essence, three in persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that each person of the Godhead is distinct, demonstrating the attributes of a unique personality (Luke 3:22; John 11:35; Eph. 4:30), yet in a mysterious way the three remain One God. The three persons of the Trinity are co-eternal (Ps. 90:2), co-equal as to their deity (Col. 2:9), power and glory, but different in role (2 Cor. 13:14). God is perfect in all His attributes with each attribute being interchangeable with all the others. Everything He does is in accordance with His good and perfect will (Rom. 12:2).
