Who is the Holy Spirit?


Who is God? The one God is Triune (one God in three Persons, not three Gods):  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Often the title "God" designates the first Person, God the Father.  God is a spiritual being without a physical body.  He is personal and involved with people.  He created the universe out of nothing.  He is eternal, changeless, holy, loving, and perfect.
  • God is Yahweh, the one Lord (Deuteronomy 6:4)
  • He is Eternal (Psalm 90:2)
  • He created the universe (Gen. 1:1)
  • He sustains all that exists (Acts 1:24-28)
  • The wonders of nature witness to His existence as Creator (Psalm 19:1-4)
  • Our conscience speaks to His existence (Romans 1:19-20)
  • The love of Christ reveals His existence as Savior and Friend (John 1:1-18; 15:15)

Because God has made Himself self-evident, our problem is not so much to prove His existence, as to stop ignoring it (John 3:17-21).  We believe obedience to God's commands will result in a powerful Church that can make a difference in the world.


Who Is Christ? Jesus is God, the second Person of the Trinity.  As God the Son, He has always existed and was never created.  He is fully God and fully man.  He is co-equal with God the Father and the Holy Spirit.  In becoming man, He was begotten through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.  Jesus is the only way to the Father, salvation, and eternal life.  He died on a cross, as full sacrifice and payment for our sins.  He rose from the dead three days later, spiritually and physically immortal.  More that 500 people saw him.  His wounds were touched and He ate meals.  He physically ascended to Heaven.  Jesus will come again visibly and physically to establish God's kingdom and judge the world (1 Corinthians 15:3-6).
  • Jesus Christ is the God-man who appeared on our planet to reveal God (John 1:1-14)
  • He came to show us how to live (1 John 2:6)
  • He came to rescue us from the guilt and power of sin (Romans 6:1-14)
  • He is Savior (Acts 4:12)
  • He is Life (John 14:6)
  • He is Lord to all who put their trust in Him (Romans 10:9-13)

Because He endured, not only what we endure, but far more.  He understands and feels what we are going through.  Because He lived as a real man, He showed us how to depend on the Holy Spirit for our every need.  He modeled the way and today all of us can depend on God.


Who Is the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is the third person of the  Trinity.  The Holy Spirit is a person, not a force or energy field.  He comforts, grieves, reproves, convicts, guides, teaches, and fills Christians.  He is not the Father, nor the Son, Jesus Christ. 
  • The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, truly God and is co-equal with the Father and the Son (Matthew 28:19; John 14:26; Acts 5:3-4; Corinthians 13:14)
  • The Holy Spirit gave birth to the church (Acts 2:1-47)
  • Baptizes believers into the church (1 Corinthians 12:13)
  • Abides in the church (1 Corinthians 3:16)
  • Unifies the church (Ephesians 2:13-22; 4:3-4)
  • Gives gifts to the church (1 Corinthians 12:4-11)
  • Provides leaders for the church (Acts 20:28)

He is Spirit; He does not have to be seen or felt in order to be close to us.  He is holy, He must be met on "holy ground."  People who have not separated themselves from sin lack the awareness of His presence.  If you are unaware of his presence perhaps you need a Savior.  Contact our church today for an explanation on how you can know God for yourself.  Please know that we are praying for you and look forward to worshipping with you very soon.
