God is the Creator of the universe and all things in it. He is the sovereign Lord of life and the source of blessings. God says, "I am the LORD, and there is no other; I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things" (Isa. 45:6-7).

God is triune (three in one), the Holy Father, the Holy Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is the true God who lives forever. Although He appears as three separate Persons, He is One. This is like the sun that is three in one—the physical body, light, and heat; like water that has three different states-solid (ice), liquid, and gas (vapor); and like electricity that has three different properties-current, light, and heat. God likewise created man three in one—spirit, soul, and body. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit - the triune God - are one entity and are of the same nature, all sharing the same honor, glory, virtue, and authority. The Holy Father created all things and prepared salvation for mankind. The Holy Son Jesus is the Word that became flesh; He came into the world to accomplish salvation. The Holy Spirit (the Comforter) brings the life of God and salvation to men.

God is without beginning or end. HE IS WHO HE IS. He is holy and good, righteous and loving, faithful and honorable. He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He is the God who never changes. The LORD proclaims to man: ‘‘The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation’’ (Exod. 34:6–7). But whoever comes humbly before God to repent of his sins and accepts Jesus as his Savior will be forgiven, and will gain grace and blessings from Him. ‘‘Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him’’ (Ps. 2:12).
