ARTICLES CONCERNING THE DIVINE MAJESTY.
That the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, three distinct persons, in one divine essence and nature, is one God, who made heaven and earth.
That the Father is of no one, the Son is begotten of the Father, the Holy Ghost proceeds from the Father and the Son.
That neither the Father nor the Holy Ghost, but the Son, became man.
That the Son thus became man, by being conceived of the Holy Ghost, without the interposition of man, and being born of the pure and holy Virgin Mary: he afterwards suffered, died, was buried, descended into hell, rose from the dead, ascended to heaven, sits at the right hand of God, will judge the living and the dead, &c. as the Apostolical and Athanasian Symbols, and the Smaller Catechism, teach.
There is no dispute nor contention about these articles; and inasmuch as both parties confess them, it is unnecessary now to treat further of them.
