The Trinity: God the Father

When I returned from sabbatical I wanted our church to take ‘vision’ a level deeper than simply our personal vision or our church’s vision. I wanted us to return to the core vision of every believer and church, which is a transforming vision of the only awesome God.

I can never get over A. W. Tozer’s statement at the beginning of his book Knowledge of the Holy: “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”

So, I took us into an exploration of the life of the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Here is the video and sermon outline of the first message, “God the Father.”

You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or by subscribing to our audio podcast.

 

Beginning with a Vision of God

To seek and know God

God is mysterious but not irrational

God is knowable but not comprehensible

 

God as Three in One

The oneness of God

Deity of the three persons

The three-in-oneness of God

 

What This Does Not Mean 

Not three Gods (Tritheism)

Not one God appearing differently (Modalism)

Not unequal persons (Arianism)

 

Living Our Triune Faith

To seek God

To know God
