God

There is only one true God. He has chosen to reveal Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Since there is one God revealed in three Persons, He is best described as a “Tri-Unity” or Trinity.

Though each member of the Trinity has distinct personal characteristics, there is no difference in their essential nature.

Almighty God has intellect, emotion, and will. Though He is not human, He is a personal Being, not a “force”. We know Him as Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Ruler of the universe.

God is self-existent. He has always been. He will never cease to be. He continues forever unchanged.

He is infinitely holy and perfect in all ways. He is all powerful and all knowing. He provides care for the universe and for the people whom He has created.

He is fully in control over the entire flow of human history. He exercises His sovereign control according to His gracious and loving purposes.

We, His creatures, owe Him the highest degree of love, respect, and obedience.
