Catechism #7


Question: What is God?
Answer: God is a spirit, Whose being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth are infinite, eternal, and unchangeable. 

“God is a spirit.” Jesus spoke those words to the woman at the well in John 4:24. To be a spirit means that God has no material body, which is quite a different God than the god of the Mormon faith.

As a spirit God is eternal, meaning He is not confined to time or space; He has always been around, and He will never go away. He is the self-existent, uncreated God of the universe.

Not only is God eternal, He is eternally unchanging. Hebrews 13:8 says that Jesus is the same “yesterday, and today, and forever.” God is not a flash in the pan one hit wonder.


If God is eternally unchanging, we can expect Him to be the same every day. And the Bible teaches that His wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth are infinite. We can rest assured that these attributes of God are here to stay.
