What we believe and teach

- The Trinity -



God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are one God. Therefore the Godhead consists of Three Divine Persons who are distinct yet, at the same time, united. This does not affect at all the oneness of God because the oneness of God, of which the Scripture speaks, is a composite oneness (or compound unity).

Even though the word ‘Trinity’ is not written in the Bible, the concept of Trinity, that is, the concept according to which God is ONE and TRIUNE, is widely confirmed by the Scripture. The divinity of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit (that is to say, the fact that each one of them is God) shows clearly that besides being ONE, God is also TRIUNE. Jesus said to His disciples that He would pray the Father and He (the Father) would give them another Comforter, that is, the Holy Spirit; and He commanded them to make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. The Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit dwell in all those who are sons of God.

Therefore the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit are not three titles of the only true God, or three manifestations of the only true God, but THREE DISTINCT PERSONS who have their own personality and individuality.

Whoever denies the Trinity is an idle talker and a deceiver, whose mouth must be stopped and of whom we must beware.
