What does the Bible tell us about God?

Getting Started

We believe there is only one true God. A God that is all powerful and loving. A God who loves His people. Because of that we begin with the question, who is God? It is paramount that we distinguish and clarify whom we worship. When our culture defines God in so many different ways.  God has revealed Himself to us through Scripture so that we may know Him and glorify Him.

Something to consider: God knows everything about us.  We need to catch up!
