Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 10

Question 10

What are the personal properties of the three persons in the Godhead?

It is proper to the Father to beget the Son, (Heb. 1:5–6,8) and to the Son to be begotten of the Father, (John 1:14,18) and to the Holy Ghost to proceed from the Father and the Son from all eternity. (John 15:26, Gal. 4:6)

The Westminster Larger Catechism: With Scripture Proofs. (Oak Harbor, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 1996).

This question upholds the filioque clause of the Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed.  The personal distinctions within the Godhead are in terms of relationship between the three persons.  A further distinction, as upheld by the late Gordon H. Clark, is that the three persons of the Godhead are distinguished from each other by the propositions that each thinks.
