in God the Father, from whom all things come, in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son, our Lord, and in the Holy Spirit, one God in three Persons, indivisible. By the Father we are perfectly loved. By the Son, born of a virgin, fully God and fully man, are we brought to salvation. By the Holy Spirit are we divinely indwelt. God is all-knowing, almighty, infinite, and yet personal. His very nature is the essence of love. He is mercy and truth. He is sovereign.
