There is the only one true God: but within this God is a family, a community of three distinct persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit. We call this concept the trinity.

God is infinitely more powerful and complex than humans, who are his creation. So it makes sense that he can’t be understood in human terms. Even though it’s not possible for our finite minds to completely understand an infinite God, he made a way for us to know him.

God has revealed himself to us through the natural world and the Bible. He has enabled all people to experience him personally through his Holy Spirit.

The Bible says that people were made in God’s image: both man and woman. It may be that God is not male in the way that we think about gender, although the Bible does refer to God as ‘he’. So that’s how we talk about him.


God is spirit. He doesn’t have a body or a form that we can see – but he did become visible in Jesus as a human. John 4:24

God is unchanging. Even though he makes change and creates, his character and purpose stays the same. James 1:17 | Hebrews 13:8

God is infinitely powerful. With God, all things are possible. Matthew 19:26

God knows everything, including our thoughts and motives. Psalm 139:1-3 | Acts 15:8

God is everywhere. He’s not limited by space like we are. Psalm 139:7-10

God is eternal. He is the God who is, who was, and always will be. He’s not limited to time like we are, and he has a different perspective of time. Revelation 1:8 | 2 Peter 3:8

God is holy. He is morally excellent, perfect.
1 Peter 1:15-16

God is righteous. He is always right. He opposes what is wrong and gives justice. Ephesians 4:24

God is love. The core of his nature is self-giving love. Not only did he make us for love, but he gave himself to save us because of his love.
1 John 4:7-10

God is truth. All truth is grounded in him.
He does not lie. John 14:6
