1. Reading from the Westminster Confession of Faith
2. Proposition: The most fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith is that there is One God in Three Persons.
Three basic points of the doctrine of the Trinity:
There is one living and true God who is eternally and unchangeably indivisible. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are each fully and equally God. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are each distinct persons. The Father is not the Son or the Holy Spirit, etc.
3. Organizational Sentence: We will consider first the basic Scriptural evidence, second, false understandings of this doctrine, and third, practical applications of this most important doctrine.
