3. The Father

God the eternal Father is the Creator, Source, Sustainer, and Sovereign

of all creation. He is just and holy, merciful and gracious, slow to anger,

and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. The qualities and powers

exhibited in the Son and the Holy Spirit are also those of the Father. (Gen

1:1; Deut 4:35; Ps 110:1, 4; John 3:16; 14:9; 1 Cor 15:28; 1 Tim 1:17;

1 John 4:8; Rev 4:11.)
