The Attributes of God

"The foundation of all true knowledge of God must be a clear mental apprehension of His perfections as revealed in Holy Scripture. An unknown God can neither be trusted, served, nor worshipped. In this booklet an effort has been made to set forth some of the principal perfections of the Divine character. If the reader is to truly profit from his perusal of the pages that follow, he needs to definitely and earnestly beseech God to bless them to him, to apply His Truth to the conscience and heart, so that his life will be transformed thereby." A.W Pink

God in Three Persons
Pastor Steve Svendsen

It is our task to contend for the faith and identify the biblical boundaries of Christian belief and behavior. Not every person who claims the name “Christian” should be allowed to cross the Jordan. I am not arguing for the death penalty for heretics, but I am arguing that the confession of the Trinity is a worthy Shibboleth.

God is Self-Sufficient
Pastor Steve Svendsen

A famous painting unintentionally misleads those who look at it. It pictures Jesus at a door, presumably the door of a sinner’s heart, waiting for permission to enter. Certainly Christ dwells in the believer’s heart by faith (Ephesians 3:17), but the easy impression makes Jesus a needy outsider and us insiders with power to give Jesus something He needs. Scripture is clear that God is not waiting in heaven to respond to us. He certainly answers our prayers, but even the prayer of faith is initiated by Him, not us (Acts 11:18; Ephesians 2:8-10).

God is Eternal
Pastor Steve Svendsen

The Hebrew title ascribed to the creator is El Olam: the God of eternity. God never had a beginning and He will never cease to be God. When we say that God is infinite (another study in itself), we describe Him as boundless in many ways like space, knowledge and power. He is also boundless in time. Another way to describe the eternality of God is temporal infinity.
