Theology

The Christian Church is not merely a school involved in researches and teaching dogmas, but an institution which worships God and serves mankind. It works for the transformation and the renewal of this world, and hopefully awaits the world to come. Truly, the Christian Church would not be the church as we know it without Christian dogmas. Dogmas interpret our whole philosophy of the church through repeated practise of our faith through the holy tradition (the holy Scriptures, worship, behavior and preaching).

The Meaning of the Holy Trinity

Heg. Fr. Abraam Sleman
Many are wondering, "Do Christians believe in one God? Or do they believe in three gods? And if they believe in one God, then what is the meaning of the Father andthe Son and the Holy Spirit?
