GOD

(De 6:4) “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:”

We believe the God of the Bible is the only true and living God, the sole and supreme creator, ruler, and judge of heaven and earth.

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Ge 1:1)

“The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.” (1Sa 2:10)

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” (Re 4:11)

God’s attributes: He is infinite; eternal; self-existent; omniscient; omnipresent; omnipotent

“But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?”(1Ki 8:27)

“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.” (De 33:27)

For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; (Joh 5:26)

“Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.” (Ps147:5)

“Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.”(Ps 139:7-12)

God’s nature: He is holy; loving; righteous; merciful

“Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.” (Ps 99:9)

“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” (1Jo 4:16)

“And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.” (Re 16:7)

“Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.” (Ps 116:5)

The Godhead consists of 3 distinct persons in 1: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.

“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one” (1Jo 5:7)
