Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Personal Confession of Faith, Article II. God

[If you haven't done so already, please read the introduction HERE. In starting my confession of faith with an article on Scripture, my confession follows historic Baptist examples, declaring and detailing the necessary, authoritative, sufficient, and clear foundation from which the rest of the confession flows. This next article declares and details some of the most important beliefs I hold concerning God, who is the object of my faith.]

II. God
I believe that there is only one God (Deut 6:4). God is revealed as the Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things (Gen 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Rom 1:18-25), the Holy Lawgiver and Judge over His creation (Exod 20:1-17; Rom 2:1-3:20; Gal 3:15-22), and the Merciful Redeemer and Lord of His people (Exod 3:6; Ps 19:14). God is spirit (John 4:24) and is personal (Exod 3:14), has in and of Himself all perfections (Matt 5:48), being infinite in them all (Isaiah 6:3); and to Him all creatures owe the highest love, reverence and obedience (Deut 6:5). God is most perfectly known in the Person and Work of Jesus Christ as revealed in Holy Scripture (John 14:8-11).
