God

We are convinced by Scripture and by reason that:

God is the only true God, sovereign Lord, and Creator of the heavens and the earth and all they contain. He is a personal God in that He is capable of being known by man. He has always existed and is eternal, demonstrating qualities of personality such as emotion, intellect, and will. God exists in the form of three persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Spirit (Holy Spirit).

God is the Creator and Giver of life (Genesis 1); spirit (John 4:24);

God is self-existent (Exodus 3:13-14John 1:1);

God is immutable (Malachi 3:6); holy (1 Samuel 2:2); love (1 John 4:8); good (1 Chron. 16:34); omniscient (Psalm 147:5Prov. 3:19); omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-10); and

God is omnipotent (Matt. 19:26). God the Person – God, is one God (Deut. 6:4) but exists in the form of three persons equal in nature, distinct in person, and subordinate in duties. The Son is eternally begotten by the Father (Psalm 2:7), submissive to do the work of the Father. The Son then sent the Holy Spirit to be a comforter/counselor (John 15:26).God the Father – Often embodying the holiness, righteousness, power, and authority of the trinity. God, the Father is best understood by the various roles of Father that He holds:

  1. Father of creation – God, is the ultimate source of heaven and earth (James 1:17)
  2. National Father of Israel – Israel is special to God as He loves Israel and has given them instruction through the giving of His law (Jer. 31:9)
  3. Unique Father of Jesus Christ – the Son that is always and eternally begotten of the Father and willing to take on flesh. (Psalm 2:7)
  4. Protective Father – He meets needs, cares, and defends His children. (Psalm 68:5)
  5. Redemptive Father – When we trust God, He becomes our Father, and we enter into an intimate relationship with Him. (Romans 8:15)
