What does the Bible teach about God?
God is our perfect, eternal, holy, loving Father.
“‘To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal?’ says the Holy One.” Isaiah 40:25
The Bible makes no attempt to prove the existence of God, rather it assumes that fact as the basis of all reality (Genesis 1:1). The existence of God can be confirmed by the unavoidable marks of intelligent design in nature (Psalm 19:1-6), the internal hunger for purpose and meaning in all people (Ecclesiastes 3:11), the supernatural quality of the Bible (Isaiah 46:8-10), and the historical reality of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (John 1:14).
The Bible declares that there is one God (Deuteronomy 6:5), who exists in three persons (Matthew 28:19). The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all equal in nature as God, yet separate in personality (Luke 3:21-22).
The Bible tells us that God is completely unique (Isaiah 46:9). He is sovereign (Revelation 15:3-5), all powerful (Luke 1:37), all knowing (Isaiah 40:28), eternal (Psalm 90:2), and unchanging (James 1:17). God is also described as holy (Revelation 4:8), completely just (Psalm 37:28), the absolute source and embodiment of truth (1 John 1:5) and unconditional love (1 John 4:7-8). He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things, and all things exist for him and His glory (Romans 11:33-36).
