Since God is three in one, Father Son and Holy Spirit, I would say yes. Because the Holy Spirit is God.

Look at Genesis 1. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. That is the Father.

When it says, "God said," that is a referral to Jesus the Christ. See the book of John, chapter 1. Jesus is "the Word."

Back to Genesis 1:2: The divine wind that moved over the face of the earth is the Holy Spirit.

For the believer, it is the Holy Spirit that indwells and becomes our helper in day-to-day life.

Salvation requires believing the gospel. Jesus Christ from Heaven gave the apostle Paul the gospel that saves today during God's Ephesians 3:2 'dispensation of grace'.

Paul's gospel:
1 Corinthians 15:1-4: "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Do you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, and that He was buried and rose again on the 3rd day? This belief is the requirement for salvation. You are accepting God's free gift by your belief (Ephesians 2:8-9), and you immediately receive Jesus Christ as your savior in doing so (Ephesians 1:13), and are sealed with the holy Spirit until Christ returns to redeem you (Ephesians 4:30).

2 Corinthians 11:3 KJV: "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."
