God is Omnipotent.
God is Omniscient.
Reading: Psalm 139 God is omniscient. This means there are no limits on his knowledge. He knows everything. God does not learn because he is the origin of all knowledge. He “knows all things past, present, future, as well as all things existing outside of time. And He never forgets, because he is everywhere fully [...]
God is Omnipresent.
Reading: Isaiah 66:1-2 & 1 Kings 8:1-30 God is omnipresent. God is spirit and therefore able to be everywhere fully present anytime. He is uncontainable. There is no place or time where God is not (this is called immanence). He is distinct from the creation he fills (this is called transcendence). Therefore, God is near [...]

God is Self-Existent.
God is Incomprehensible.

However, he can be sufficiently known - through creation, scripture and the Holy Spirit. This means there is always more to discover about God. As his creation, it [...]
God is Infinite.
Reading: Isaiah 40 God is infinite. This means God cannot be measured. To say anything is like God falls short. He has no limits. Therefore, all of his attributes are limitless which is why we must begin with this attribute. There is no end to his greatness, we’ll never get bored or run out of things [...]
