God the Father. The Christian Trinity consists of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, as established by the Nicene Creed. The concept of the Trinity is embraced by the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church, and nearly all Protestantism denominations.

It is said: "There are three who bear witness in heaven, the father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost" (1 John 5:7). To those who ask, "Three what?" we answer, with Augustine (De Trin. vii, 4), "Three persons." Therefore there are but three persons in God. [1]

To Christians, God the Father is the Creator, the father of all and the provider for his children, his people. The expressions "God the Father" and "God our Father" appear frequently in the Gospels.
