There is but one living and true God, everlasting, without body or parts, of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness; the maker and preserver of all things, both visible and invisible. And in unity of this Godhead there are three persons, of one substance, power, and eternity—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Article II — Of the Word, or Son of God, Who Was Made Very Man Faith in the Holy Trinity The Word, or Son of God, Who Was Made Very Man The Resurrection of Christ The Holy Ghost The Sufficiency of the Holy Scriptures for Salvation The Old Testament Original or Birth Sin Free Will Justification Good Works Works of Supererogation Sin After Justification The Church Purgatory Speaking in the Congregation in Such a Tongue as the People Understand Sacraments Baptism The Lord's Supper Both Kinds The One Oblation of Christ, Finished upon the Cross Marriage of Ministers Rites and Ceremonies of Churches Rulers of the United States of America Christian Men's Goods Christian Man's Oath The Son, who is the Word of the Father, the very and eternal God, of one substance with the Father, took man's nature in the womb of the blessed Virgin; so that two whole and perfect natures, that is to say, the Godhead and Manhood, were joined together in one person, never to be divided; whereof is one Christ, very God and very Man, who truly suffered, was crucified, dead, and buried, to reconcile his Father to us, and to be a sacrifice, not only for original guilt, but also for actual sins of men.
