Christians believe there is only one God. However, they also believe in Trinity, which is a belief that God is three substantial persons - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, they believe that God is omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing) and omnibenevolent (all-loving).

Ask me anything if you'll need any details.

Nature of God means his characteristics, his attributes and his qualities. Just like I said, he's omnipotent, omnibenevolent etc.

What year are you in? I do about that in RS.
Nature of God is just God's characteristics
Christianity is monotheistic so they believe there is only one God. God is omnipotent(all powerful), God is omnibenovolent(all kind), omniscient(all knowing).

Some of the other ones Christians may believe in different, e.g some people in an immanent God so God who is in the world and takes an active part in human history and some people in a transcendent God, a God directly outside the world and does not act directly in it. Most Christians will believe in a personal and immanent God.

it means the characteristics of god, e.g.:
•omnipotent- all loving
•omniscient- all knowing
•omnipresent- everywhere, all at once
•omnibenevolent- all loving
•immanent- in the earth
•transcendent- outside the world
•personal- close
•impersonal- mysterious
