Question 3. Yet some people no longer believe there is a God.
Why do we believe in God?
We believe in God because we are part of a community of faith which through the preaching of Christ’s gospel and the work of the Holy Spirit creates and nourishes faith.
We believe in God because of revelation. God is revealed in the history of Israel and supremely in Jesus Christ. Through God alone can God be known.
We believe in God because the universe poses the question: “Where did all of this come from?” We reply: “It came from God. God made it. God is creator. The world is charged with the glory of God and the universe points to its maker.”
We believe in God, because we are made in the divine image and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in God.
Rom 10:17 So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.
2 Cor 4:6 For it is the God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Ps 19:1 The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
