The Trinity

god always existed

god was never created

christians belive in one god: Father, Son, Holy Spirit

There are not 3 gods

There are 3 persons in one god

this is a mystery of faith

The incarnation

  • second person of trinity, the son left heaven 2 become a human being
  • he was conceived in womb of mother, Mary by power of Holy Spirit and given the name Jesus which means God saves
  • he had a human mother but no human father. Joseph was his foster father
  • Jesus always existed as god in heaven (now god takes human flesh and lives on earth as true god and true man)
  • This is called mystery of the incarnation
