As Orthodox Christians we confess, “Father, Son and Holy Spirit, One in essence and undivided.” We believe that this is the same God who created the world and human beings and who continues to care for all that He has created; that made Himself know in a personal and immediate way to his disciples in the man Jesus Christ; and whose Spirit, poured out on the disciples at Pentecost, enlivens and renews all those who come to him in faith, through the sacrament of Baptism. Having become children of the light (Eph 5:8): participants by grace in the holiness of the undivided Trinity, in baptism we take up the cross and follow (Luke 9:23; Mark 10:21) trusting in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to perfect the work that has been begun in us.
