Differences in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

The disciples of Jesus Christ were called to ?baptize all nations in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit (Matt 28:19)?. The book made it clear that God exists as three Persons, which is known as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. There are some differences between These Three but they are one and united.

The restoration of the communion would happen if all the people empowered by the Holy Spirit would see in each other the Church in its extensiveness. Having stated this, I began to ask myself, ?How should we see the Church in ourselves??
Based on what I?ve read, I think that we should see the Church as the light towards God. Our relationship with God is what makes up the Church in us. How can we establish our relationship with God? There?s a line in the...
