Lord's Day 8: Heidelberg Catechism

How are these articles divided?

A24: Into three parts: God the Father and our creation; God the Son and our deliverance; God the Holy Spirit and our sanctification.

Q25: Since there is but one God, why do you speak of three: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

A25: Because that is how God has revealed Himself in His Word: these three distinct persons are one, true, eternal God.
