God has revealed Himself to be the living and true God, perfect in love and righteous in all His ways; one in essence, existence eternally in the three persons of the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Scripture is an essential part and trustworthy record of this divine self-disclosure. All the books of the Old and New Testaments, given by divine inspiration, are the written Word of God.
God, by His Word and for His glory, freely created the world from nothing. He made people in His own image, as the crown of creation, that people might have fellowship with Him.
