(C) The Person and Work of The Father.

  1. We believe that God the Father is the first person of the Godhead and offers sonship to all who believe. (Jn. 1:12; I Jn. 3:1; Hebrews 1:5)
  2. We believe that if one denies the Son, he also denies the Father. (I Jn. 2:22, 23)
  3. We believe that the Father knows the day and hour when Christ will return. (Mat. 24:36; Mark 13:32)
  1. "The same was in the beginning with God." John 1:2
    "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not." 1 John 3:1
    "For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?" Hebrews 1:5
  2. "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also." 1 John 2:22-23
  3. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." Matthew 24:36
    "But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father." Mark 13:32
