London Baptist Confession – Week 7

2. God and the Holy Spirit

  1. The Lord our God is the one and only living and true God; Whose subsistence is in and of Himself- Who is infinite in being and perfection; Whose essence cannot be comprehended by any but Himself;- Who is a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts, or passions

    – Who only has immortality

    – Who dwells in the light which no man can approach, Who is immutable, immense, eternal, incomprehensible, almighty, in every way infinite, most holy, most wise, most free, most absolute;

    – Who works all things according to the counsel of His own immutable and most righteous will, for His own glory;

    – Who is most loving, gracious, merciful, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth;

    – Who forgives iniquity, transgression, and sin;

    – Who is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him;

    – and Who, at the same time, is most just and terrible in His judgements, hating all sin and Who will by no means clear the guilty.
