Who is God?

What do we know about this amazing God, this God of miracles and creative wonder?

Because God knows everything, I will go to Him with all my questions and concerns

Christians believe God is actually three Persons, a “Trinity.” Though the word “Trinity” isn’t found in the Bible, in the very beginning of God’s story, the creation story, we see proof that God is plural. Genesis 1:26 says, “Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness.” The creation story tells us we were created in the image of God, and Adam and Eve were two distinct persons who came together as one, just as God is three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – but – one true God.

Because God never changes,

My future is secure and eternal.

The journey of faith begins with our belief in God. Like the early Christians, we too are called to make our own personal declaration. Do we believe in the one true God? Do we accept the Bible as it reveals that God exists in three Persons? Even though we are weak and not fully able to understand the mysteries of God, he works mightily in and through those who believe.

Because God is absolute truth,
I will believe what He says and live accordingly.

When we embrace God with our whole heart and worship him with our whole life, we experience the inner fruit of the Spirit that transforms our lives from the inside out. When we are growing, experiencing restoration in our relationships and doing the right thing, it is evident that God is in us and with us.

Because God is faithful,
I will trust Him to always keep His promises.

What difference does this make in the way I live?

Because I was created in the image of God as, and for, community…

  • I recognise the full personhood of others and respect boundaries.
  • I look out for the rights, preferences, and comfort of others.
  • I value and enjoy others.

Because God is holy,
I will devote myself to Him in purity, worship, and service.

For any situation, relationship, or decision we face, we can resolutely apply these principles to guide us. The results, over time, will lead to blessing in our own souls in the form of fruit such as joy and peace, and we will express our actions outwardly for others to enjoy in the form of fruit such as love and kindness!

Because God is all-powerful,
He can help me with anything.

Because God is just,
He will always treat me fairly.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14.

Because God is love,
He is unconditionally committed to my well-being.
I will joyfully submit to His will. 

Because God is righteous,
I will live by His standards.

Because God is sovereign, 
I will joyfully submit to His will.

Because God is personal Spirit,
I will seek intimate fellowship with Him.

Is the Holy Spirit the same as God?

Before we dive too deeply into how the Holy Spirit can help us, let’s take some time to figure out exactly who He is. Where did He come from? Is Holy Spirit just another name for God? How is He different? All great questions. Imagine as far back in time as you can. Before earth. Before our […]
