Heidelberg Catechism — Lord’s Day 8

The Holy Trinity

24. How are these articles divided?

Into three parts: the first is of God the Father and our creation; the second, of God the Son and our redemption; the third, of God the Holy Spirit and our sanctification.1

  1. 1 Pt 1:2

25. Since there is but one Divine Being,1 why do you speak of three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

Because God has so revealed Himself in His Word,,2 that these three distinct persons are the one, true, eternal God.

  1. Deut 6:4; Isa 44:6, 45:5; 1 Cor 8:4-6;
  2. Gen 1:2-3; Ps 110:1; Isa 61:1, 63:8-10; Mt 3:16-17, 28:18-19; Lk 4:18; Jn 14:26, 15:26; 2 Cor 13:14; Gal 4:6; Tit 3:5-6
