The Bible and nature
describe the attributes of God.
God is eternal spirit
–--He has always existed (Gen ; Deu 33:27; Jn ).
God is the Creator of
all things (Gen 1:1).
As Creator, God is all-powerful.
As Creator, God is all-knowing.
As Creator, God is all-present.
As Creator, God is perfect
–absolutely just and merciful.
God is one and love.
In order to be love and to love, God equally manifests self in Three Persons –Father, Son, Holy Spirit (Deu 6:4; Mt
28:19-20; 1 Jn 4:8).
God is self-revealing.
He chooses to relate to mankind as a male (Gen 1:1; Jn 1:1). He partially reveals Himself through general revelation by the
created things of nature and conscience (Ps 19:2; Rom -21; -15). He reveals Himself through special revelation in the Bible and especially in the person of Jesus
Christ (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet ; Heb 1:1-2).
God is personal --–
He cares for His creation. This attribute affects every doctrine of theology and influences everything I as a conservative
theologian believe about God (Heb 11:6).
