Bible Passage: 1 Chron. 29:10-12.

The Bible unequivocally teaches that there is only one God who created all things, sustains all things, and transcends all things. This is what we believe as Christians. It is worth noting that we do not worship or serve the same God as the people of other religions who also believe that there is only one “God”. Who then is our God and what makes Him unique?
