We believe that God is one (Deut 6:4, Isa. 43:10), all powerful, all knowing, eternal Creator, Redeemer, and Sovereign Ruler over all creation. His character is immutable (Mal. 3:6) and in His infinite holiness He stands as altogether transcendent from His creation (Ex. 3:5, Lev. 19:2, Ps. 99:9, Isa 6:3, 57:15). In this uniqueness apart from His creation, His nature is Triune--meaning He exists in three distinct persons, known as the Trinity (Matt. 28:19, 2 Cor. 13:14). The persons of the Trinity all share the same essence (or substance) yet are distinct from one another as expressed in the Scriptures (Mk. 1:9-11, Jn. 14:16-17) as well as the Athanasius Creed. The person of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all considered God and are co-eternal, co-equal, uncreated and dwell in everlasting perfect unity. Although God is transcendent, He is also knowable and involved in His creation by way of relationship and providential decree.
