The Belgic Confession 1: There is Only One God

25 Aug

I’m starting a new Monday series, as I’ve done in the past (Westminster Larger Catechism and the Heidelberg Catechism), this time going through the Belgic Confession of Faith 1561

ARTICLE 1 – THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD

We all believe with the heart and confess with the mouth1 that there is only one God,2 who is a simple and spiritual Being;3 He is eternal,4 incomprehensible,5 invisible,6 immutable,7 infinite,8 almighty,9 perfectly wise,10 just,11 good,12 and the overflowing fountain of all good.13
