We believe in THE ONE TRIUNE GOD: who is personal, spirit, and sovereign (Mark 12:29; John 4:24; 14:9; Psalm 135:6); perfect, infinite and eternal in His being; holiness, love, wisdom, and power (Psalm 18:30; 147:5; Deuteronomy 33:27); absolutely separate and above the world as its Creator; yet everywhere present in the world as the Upholder of all things (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 104); Self-existent and self-revealing in three distinct Persons--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (John 5:26; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14), each of whom is to be honored and worshiped equally as true God (John 5:23; Acts 5:3-4). While the three members of the triune Godhead are fully equal in essence and authority, there is a functional subordination between the members. The Father does not proceed from anyone; all things are from Him (1 Corinthians 8:6). The Son is sent from the Father (John 3:16; 1 John 4:9), and the Holy Spirit is sent from both the Father and the Son (John 14:26; 16:7). When all things are finally subjected to the Son, then the Son Himself will be subjected to the Father, that God might be all in all (1 Corinthians 15:28).
