1. God's Person
    1. God
      God is revealed in His Word as three persons in one, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. These three exist with precisely the same divine nature and perfective attributes. He exists eternal, unchanging, sovereign, personal, loving, holy, just, righteous, omniscience, omnipresent, omnipotence, immutable, spirit, self-existent, truth, merciful, infinite, and more. Gen. 1:1; Deut. 6:4; Psa. 104; 135:6; Matt. 28:19; Mark 12:29; John 1:14; 4:24; 5:23,26; 14:9; Acts 5:4; 2Cor. 13:14; 1Tim. 2:5; Heb. 1:1; Rev. 1:4-6
    2. God the Father
      God the Father the first of the three functions as the leader, initiator, and protector. He possesses the same divine nature and perfective attributes as the other two. It is the God the Father who willed, and sent the Son. Matt. 11:27; 24:36; John 1:18; 3:35; 4:23; 5:26,36-37; 6:44-46; 8:18,28; 10:17,30,32,36,38; 12:26,49; 13:3; 14:6,10; 20:21; Acts 1:4,7; 1Cor. 8:6; 1John 3:1; 4:14; 5:1
    3. God the Son
      God the Son is revealed with precisely the same divine nature and attributes as God the Father and God the Spirit. At the perfect time in human history, He took on human form by a virgin conception. He is unique (monogenes) unlike any other. He is totally divine and totally human, hence is perfectly suited to substitute for us in His saving work on the cross. He came to die for the sins of the world. He succeeded and was raised on the third day, there after ascending to heaven. He is the sinless God-man seated in heaven today. His many names reveal His person, nature, and work. He is called the eternal Word, the Way, the Life, the Son, the Christ, the Lord of Lords, the King of kings, the Angel of Jehovah, and others. He will physically return one day to take all believers to be with Him forever and rule the future earthly Messianic kingdom. Is. 53:5-6; Matt. 20:28; Luke 1:30-35; 2:40; 24:39; John 1:1-2,14,18,29; 3:16; Rom. 3:25-26; 8:34; 1Cor. 15:3; 2Cor. 5:14; Gal. 3:13; Phil. 2:5-8; 3:20-21; Col. 2:9; 1Tim. 2:6; Titus 2:13; Heb. 1:3; 4:15; 7:25; 9:24; 10:5-14; 13:8; 1Pet. 1:3-5,18-19; 3:18; 1John 2:1-2; Rev. 22:16
    4. God the Spirit
      God the Spirit is also revealed with precisely the same divine nature and perfective attributes as God the Father and God the Son. God the Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgement. He functions in creation, revelation, and redemption. He regenerates, indwells, seals, empowers, guides, teaches, sanctifies, and distributes spiritual gifts to all believers of this age. John 16:8-11; Rom. 8:9; 1Cor. 12:7,12-14; Eph. 1:13-14; John 16:12-15; Acts 9:31; Rom. 8:14,16,26; 9:1; Gal. 5:16-18,22-23; Eph. 3:16-20; 4:30; 1Th. 5:19

      The Spirt distributes spiritual gifts to believers as He wills. God used some spiritual gifts (such as apostleship, miracles, tongues, healings, and prophecy) that were temporary in nature, as signs to unbelieving Jews and to confirm the New Testament message and its messengers. The sign gifts legitimately functioned until the completion of the canon of Scripture, ceasing by the end of the first century. Rom. 12:6-8; 1Cor. 12:7-11,28-30; 13:8-10; 14:21-22; Eph. 2:20; 4:11; Heb. 2:3-4; 1Pet. 4:10
