THEOLOGY: Doctrine of God

March 2019

Attempts to develop a doctrine of God which elevate His divine attributes to primary influence are inadequate to convey the full spectrum of the biblical revelation regarding the nature of God. There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. God is all powerful and all knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future decisions of His free creatures. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience.

THEOLOGY: The Doctrine of God 2

March 2019

Humanity has not chosen to know God, but God has chosen to reveal His love and grace to mankind anew.

Creation reveals God. The whole universe, its presence and its nature, declares God. Mankind can see the "eternal power," the Supreme Intelligence and Force of God. Mankind is without excuse. They have every evidence imaginable directing them toward God, yet they reject the knowledge of God within creation (Acts 14:17; Rom. 1:20; Psa. 19:1; Psa. 97:6). When people push God out of their minds, their minds are void and empty (Psa.10:4; 94:11; Gen. 6:5; Prov. 6:16-19; 15:26; Eze. 8:12; Psa. 82:5; Proverbs 2:13; 4:19; Acts 28:27; 2 Cor. 4:4; Ephes. 4:18; 2 Tim. 3:7; Matt. 7:26-27; James 4:17).

THEOLOGY: The Trinity

March 2019

What is it about the Trinity that makes it so important to the Believer?

There has always been only one God and will always be only one God.

The doctrine of the Trinity is foundational to the Christian faith. It is crucial for properly understanding what God is like, how he relates to us, and how we should relate to him. The doctrine of the Trinity is arrived at systematically by looking at the totality of Scripture. It is the proper representation of scriptural Revelation concerning the nature of God. Matt. 28:19; Matt. 3:16-17; 1 Cor. 12:4-6; 2 Cor. 13:14; Eph. 4:4-6. The members of the Trinity work together to the glory of God to display their perfect unity and diversity.

John 14:6 is a statement of absolute truth and is an essential Christian teaching that cannot be denied. To deny this is to deny what Jesus said. Matt. 1:23 teaches that without the virgin birth, we cannot substantiate the doctrine of the incarnation of Jesus being God in flesh. This would put at risk what Jesus said in John 8:24. To deny the physical resurrection of Jesus is to deny that Jesus' work was a satisfactory offering to God the Father. It would mean that Jesus was corrupt and needed to stay in the grave. He did not stay because his sacrifice was perfect (1 Cor. 15:14; 1 Cor. 15:17). Scripture clearly states that if you say that Jesus did not rise from the dead, then your faith is useless (John 2:19-21).
