Is the Holy Spirit a ‘He’ or an ‘It’ (no gender)?

Q. There has been much discussion about the Godhead and the concept of the Trinity. Are God the Father, God the Son and the Holy Spirit equal in all things? Is the Spirit a “He” or an “It” (no gender)?

The Holy Spirit is a He, not an It. He is the third person of the trinity (Godhead), who exercises the power of the Father and the Son in creation and redemption.

Matthew 1:18
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.

John 15:26
26*”When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me,

The Biblical concept of the “Trinity” relates to the coexistence of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in the unity of the Godhead (divine nature or essence). The doctrine of the trinity means that within the being and activity of the one God there are three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Although the word trinity does not appear in the Bible, the “trinitarian formula” is mentioned in the Great Commission (Matt 28:19) and in the benediction of the apostle Paul’s Second Epistle to the Corinthians (2 Cor 13:14).

Matt 28:19
19* “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

2 Cor 13:14
14* The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
