God

The creator and sustainer of the universe who has provided humankind with a revelation of Himself through the natural world and through His Son, Jesus Christ. The Bible does not seek to prove the existence of God; it simply affirms His existence by declaring, “In the beginning God” (Genesis 1:1). God has revealed Himself through the physical universe (Psalms 19:1; Romans 1:19-20). By observing the universe, one can find positive indications of God’s existence. Creation reveals the results of a universal mind that devised a master plan and executed it. It makes more sense to accept the ideas of God as Creator of the universe than to assume that our orderly universe came into existence apart from a divine being.

The greatest revelation of God, however, comes through the Bible, through the inspired written record, both the existence of God and the nature of God are revealed in and through Jesus Christ. Jesus stated, “He that has seen me, has seen the Father” (John 14:9). Although the full revelation of God was in Jesus Christ, the human mind cannot fully understand God. One reason for this is that Scripture does not record all the actions and teachings of Jesus (John 21:25). Another reason is the limitation of the human mind. How can our finite minds understand the infinity of God? It is not possible.

Although we cannot fully understand God, we still can know Him. We know Him through a personal relationship of faith and through a study of what the Bible teaches about His nature. God may described in terms of attributes. God is all about His word, and God’s word is all about Good News, and the Good News is for God’s people.
