WHAT BAPTISTS BELIEVE

Part 2 - THE TRUE GOD

We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, Jehovah the maker and Supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth. (Jn 4:24) (Ps 147:5) (Ps 83:18) (Heb 3:4) (Rom 1:20) (Jer 10:10) inexpressibly glorious in holiness (Ex 15:11) that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Mt 28:19) (Jn 15:16) (1 Jn 5:7) equal in every Divine Perfection (Jn 10:30) and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (Eph 2:18) (2 Cor 13:14) . He is worthy of all possible honor.
