The God-Head

2 Corinthians 4:13 – “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written (Psalm 116:10), I believe, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe and therefore speak…..”

We believe in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost, eternally existent as one God, referred to in the Scriptures as the Godhead. The Character of perfection, and all the attributes of God the Father, described below, are shared equally by the Son and the Holy Spirit.

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one (1 John 5:7).

The word Godhead is referred to three times in the New Testament (Acts 17:29; Rom 1:20; Colossians 2:9).  We believe in one God who has revealed himself to us in three persons, all of whom are God.

God the Father’s plan is being carried out by God the Son under the anointing and direction of God the Holy Ghost.  The amazing truth is that the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Jesus bodily (Colossians 2:9).

The Godhead is fully operative in the building of the Body of Christ (the Church) as shown in the scriptures (1Corinthians 12:4-6).  Here we see the diversities of gifts of the Holy Ghost, the differences of administration, but the same Lord (Jesus Christ) and the diversities of operations, but the same God (the Father).

The fullness of the Godhead can also be a believer’s portion, so as to enable such a person to be an effective and functioning member in the Body of Christ (Galatians 4:6; John 14:23; Acts 2:4,38-39).

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen (Ephesians 3:14-21).
