Heidelberg Lord’s Day 8

24. How are these articles divided (see Lord’s Day 7)?
Into three parts: God the Father and our creation; God the Son and our deliverance; God the Holy Spirit and our sanctification.

25. Since there is but one God, why do you speak of three: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?
Because that is how God has revealed himself in his Word: these three distinct persons are one, true, eternal God.

Dt 6.4; 1Co 8.4,6
