About God

There's a lot to tell you about God. One song says that if every blade of grass were a pen and the whole ocean an inkwell and all the sky a parchment, there still wouldn't be enough space to write everything about God. So, obviously, there's no way we can tell you everything about God in one webpage. But there are some important points that we'd like to make.

And it begins with a simple statement - God exists.

This is probably the simplest and most fundamental presupposition of the Bible. The very first verse presumes it to be true. The very last verse continues to support it. Since God has revealed Himself through the Bible, we can begin to get a glimpse of who He is and what He is like.

One way to know God is to understand His characteristics. No list can be exhaustive. But there are three main attributes of God that keep coming up over and over as God reveals Himself to us. He is all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-present.

It is also important to understand that the Bible strongly encourages us to go far beyond just knowing God factually. It insists throughout its pages that we need to know God personally. To aid us in this, God has also described Himself by letting us know some of His names.

God is also described in the Bible as the Creator. What that simply means is that everything and everyone who exists-apart from God Himself-was created by Him. That doesn't mean that He created the bad that goes along with our world-we'll get to that when we talk about people. God created the entire universe-all stars, planets, animals, plants, and people - and it was all VERY good.
