HOLY TRINITY - It was revealed that GOD is one, yet He is three in PERSONS: God the Father, the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit, -- a TRINITY Consubstantial and Undivided.
- GOD THE FATHER is neither begotten, nor proceeds from another Person, He is the eternal Source of the Godhead.;
- THE SON OF GOD (Jesus Christ) is from all eternity begotten of the Father;
- THE HOLY SPIRIT, from all eternity, proceeds from the Father.
God is three Persons, one in Essence. The three Persons of the Most Holy TRINITY are all of absolutely equal Divine majesty. The Father is true God, the Son is equally true God; and the Holy Spirit is true God, but yet so, that in three Persons is only ONE GOD. All attributes of God are either unique to each Person (e.g., Fatherhood) or common to all three (e.g., perfection). God is unknowable essence but knowable energies.
