What does the Nicene Creed say about God the Father?
God the Son: Jesus
He was incarnated (born) as a human to bring God’s message and to be sacrificed for humans.
His death as a sacrifice broke down a barrier between God and humans which was caused by the sins of humans.
He was resurrected (brought back to life) to show that death can be conquered, and people can go to heaven.
We can relate to God the Son as he was a human like us.
In the Trinity, God the Son is called _______
God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the presence of God on earth. After Jesus' resurrection he went to heaven, he left behind the Holy Spirit as a comforter and guide.
