Statement of Faith: God


           There is one God who is the one Creator of all (Deuteronomy 6:4;Colossians 1:16), who has revealed Himself in three distinct 'Persons'—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14), in one being, essence, and glory (John 10:30). He has always been The Triune God and was never anything else (Psalm 90:2). God is eternal (Psalm 90:2), infinite (1 Timothy 1:17), and sovereign (Psalm 93:1). God is omniscient (Psalm 139:1-6), omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-13), omnipotent (Revelation 19:6), and unchanging (Malachi 3:6). God is holy (Isaiah 6:3), just (Deuteronomy 32:4), and righteous (Exodus 9:27). God is love (1 John 4:8), gracious (Ephesians 2:8), merciful (1 Peter 1:3), and good (Romans 8:28). He is to be worshiped (Gen. 24:26; Ex. 4:31; 2 Chron. 29:28; 1 Cor. 14:25; Rev. 7:11). He is to be served (Matt. 4:10; 1 Cor. 6:19; Phil. 3:7; 1 Thess. 1:9; Heb. 9:14). He is to be proclaimed (Matt. 28:19f.; John 14:15f.; Acts 1:8).

           The principle 'God's Glory Alone' emphasizes the glory of God is the goal and purpose of life and being. He deserves all worship, all service, and all glory from all things at all times. Rather than striving to worship, serve, and glorify church leaders and other people, or live by a list of rules, or worship, serve and glorify ourselves, our reason for being is to glorify the Lord alone (1 Cor 10:31).
