The Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit is central to our faith as we share the gospel to seafarers. We believe in ONE GOD, 3 distinct persons in one Godhead. The trinity in unity and unity in the trinity.
The first person is the Father, our creator who loved the world. The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and Earth, Acts 17:24-26. As we ministers to seafarers, we're reminded that God has made of one blood all nations. We aremembers of the same human race.
God has created us for the purpose of loving and having fellowship with us. He's our Friend who is jelous for our love and fellowship in return. He has covenanted with us a sure salvation through faith in his Son Jesus.
Next week we will learn about the blood covenant relationship with Jesus.
