In the Beginning [January 29, 2017] Tim Haring

Different religions have differing ideas of what God is like. But who is God? How can we know Him? And what difference does any of it make?

In the Beginning is a series focusing on what God has made known about himself in the first three chapters of the Bible in the book of Genesis. Join us in discovering how life changing this information can be in our relationship with God and with others.
God lives in eternal community; so should we.
What exactly is the Trinity? According to the New Bible Dictionary:
Three affirmations are central to the historic doctrine of the Trinity: 1. there is but one God; 2. the Father, the Son and the Spirit is each fully and eternally God; 3. the Father, the Son, and the Spirit is each a distinct person.[1]
