We believe that there is only one eternal, holy, loving, omniscient, and omnipotent God co-existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  All three Persons of the Trinity were actively involved in the creation of the universe and of man as accounted in the books of Genesis and of the Gospel according to John, where Jesus's presence as "the Word" is mentioned: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters" (Genesis 1:1-2).  "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made" (John 1:1-2). The Holy Trinity also appears manifested in three Persons at Jesus Christ's baptism: "As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, 'This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased'" (Mathew 3:16, 17)

God the Father was not only involved in the creation, but also in the salvation plan that is designed to restore mankind to a state of holiness and grant people access to eternal life in His presence.  This restoration work involved Christ's expiatory death on the cross for our sins and our acceptance of His gift and surrender to live our life with Him and for Him:  "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).  In God's economy, in order to reconcile His holiness and justice with His grace and love, a perfect sacrifice had to be brought as ransom for the sins of each human being.  Christ, the only Son of Man who was also the Son of God, blameless and sinless, was the only One Who could meet these criteria.  Christ's mission on earth lasted only 33 years but impacted the whole history of mankind.  We believe that Christ shall return to Earth at a time known only by the Father and in a way that will be visible to everybody. After His ascension to Heaven, Christ remains our High Priest and Intercessor to the Father, but He had also sent us the Holy Spirit Who is actively influencing and guiding the life of every believer: "And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you" (John 14:16-17).
