Faith in God is about a relationship, not a religion. This makes knowing God central to a personal faith. “Who are you, God?” is the vital question the Bible answers in a surprising way. Throughout the Scriptures, god defines himself as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Bible scholars call this mind-bending truth the Trinity.

Spread the Word

Shortly before the resurrected Jesus ascended to heaven, He gave a command—often called the Great Commission—to His followers: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” Matthew 28:19 ESV.

After God's Heart

David is known for greatness—as a runt shepherd boy he used a slingshot to kill the giant Goliath. Later he was crowned king, serving his people as both leader and warrior.
