A. The basis of our Creed, Discipline, and Rules of Order and Doctrine is the Word of God as taught and revealed by the Holy Ghost. (John 14:26; I Cor. 2:9-13.)
B. All scriptures is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (II Tim. 3:16-17) We stand for all Scriptures, rightly divided.
C. God is a Spirit and they that worship him must worship him in Spirit and in truth. (St. John 4:24)
D. There is but one God, therefore, there is but one Spirit. God is, in essence, and in person one from whom and in whom there is a divine three-fold manifestation and relationship made known as the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
E. First, as Father, he is the Creator, source, origin, and progenitor of all things and souls, Universal Father, and Father of eternity, without body or parts, self- existent; that is, existent of himself and by himself, omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent.
F. Second, as Son of Man in redemption of man from sin coming into the world through the immaculate conception and virgin birth, thus assuming a personality, the second greatest mystery of all times; a body for the purpose of redemption through the death of those who had sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God, God's Lamb that taketh away the sins of the world.
G. Thirdly, the Holy Spirit, regenerator and perfecter of those who believe, the organizer and element of the church, the divine executor and head. This trinity of manifestation of relationship may be compared to the body, soul, and spirit of operation in every man. The father. The Divine essence and Spirit, and the all begotten Divinity, corresponds to the soul of man.
H. The Son is the humanity of Jesus Christ made divine and united to the Father-Spirit, or, in other words the divine Humanity answering to the body of man. The Holy Spirit is the Divine Proceeding Energy out of the Son.
From the Father who dwelleth in the son, thus answering to the operation of man's spirit and body together.
Therefore, God as Father is creator and first cause of all things from eternity. As Son, the Redeemer in time, and as the Holy Spirit, the Regenerator in the church to eternity. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is that God.
