What I believe…
God, the Father, is the first person of the Trinity

Why I believe it…
• The Father can be seen in creation
• The Father is not like us (he is transcendent)
• The Father is like us (rather, we can be like him)
• The Father is sovereign over all
• The Father provides the way of salvation

How I’m living because of it…
• I know what I mean when I say, “Father”
• I have received his love
• I understand his discipline
• I am submitting to his will
• I am taking on his character
