We believe that "God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit" are equal to each other in one unity. But are they the same as or different from each other?

The Holy Trinity "The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit" are equal to each other in one unity and one essence, but each is a distinct hypostasis. God the Father is the Creator of heaven and earth, and all seen and unseen. He created the world through the Son (the Word or Logos) in the Holy Spirit.

From the Father, the Son is begotten not created; He is the Word of God. Through the Son we come to know the Father (Matthew 11:27). He is the Savior of the world. The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father, is the Spirit of God (Genesis 1:2) and is One in essence with the Father just as is the Logos. The Holy Spirit is the Inspirer of the Holy Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21). He empowers the Church for service to God (Acts 1:8) and imparts spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:7-13) and virtues (Galatians 5:22-23) for Christian life and witness.
