WHAT WE BELIEVE AND TEACH ABOUT THE NATURE AND BEING OF GOD
"... We trust in the living God." I Tim. 4:10.
We, the Holiness People confess faith in and worship a personal supreme Being whom we call God. Him we affirm to be Creator, Sustainer and Governor of the Universe. He is self sufficient and Eternal, of one nature, substance and essence, yet existing in Three Sacred Persons, the Everlasting Father, the Eternal Son, and the Holy Spirit -- The ever blessed Trinity. Besides Him there is none other and in His absolute attributes and prerogatives none may share.
This God has created all things for His glory by His own omnipotent word. He upholds all things by the word of His power, and in the realm of Providence He rules and overrules so that all things work together for good to them that love Him.
Nor does He only inhabit the distances. He is an interested Presence always at hand to help those who trust Him. He is the Father of Infinite Majesty, yet, approachable with boldness through the merits of His redeeming Son by the aid of the Holy Spirit.
This God is our God for ever and ever.
