Article III: Of the Holy Spirit

III. Of the Holy Spirit

That the Holy Spirit is a divine person; equal with God  the Father and God the Son and of the same nature, that He was active in the creation; that in His relation to the unbelieving world he restrains the Evil one until God’s purpose is fulfilled; that  He convicts of sin, of judgment and of righteousness; that He  bears witness  to the Truth of the Gospel in preaching  and  testimony; that  He  is the agent in the New Birth; that He  seals,  endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies, and helps the believer.
