The Character of God

The world has no shortage of theories as to what they believe ‘God’ to be like. As Christians, we believe God has revealed his character comprehensively through the bible. It is within the pages of scripture that we find detailed revelation of God’s knowable attributes such as his holiness, love, sovereignty, omniscience, and more. We as a church are committed to interpreting these scriptures rightly, so that we might know and love God as he truly is. We recognise that the deeper we delve into understanding the true nature of our creator, the better equipped we are to gain understanding, too, of our own identities as his image-bearing creation. Importantly, with the Spirit’s help, our biblical knowledge of God enables us to keep the commandment of loving him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. As theologian A.W. Tozer once wrote, “To know [God] is to love him, and to know him better is to love him more.”
