"This is eternal life: that they may know you (Father), the only true God, and the one you have sent - Jesus Christ."
To fulfill our Mission of loving God with all of our heart, understanding, and strength, we have to grow in our knowledge of him. Here, we try to understand who God is and who Jesus is by seeing what Scripture says about them.
Christians and churches in general have often misunderstood and confused who God is, evidenced by viewing many churches statement of faith. Typically, churches will have little to nothing to say about GOD, other than there is a “trinity” of the Father, Son, and Spirit who are all co-equal and co-eternal. There are usually statements about who Jesus and the Holy Spirit are, but they are often woefully silent about the Father. Unfortunately, many claims about who God is are not found in Scripture but were formed in Catholic Church councils from the fourth and fifth centuries. History is very clear about this.
We hope to clarify from Scripture the differences between God and his Messiah. This will also demonstrate that many Christians have confused the roles of God and his son so thoroughly that we really know neither. John 17:3 tells us this is a big problem.
These scripture verses can aid you in knowing what the Bible says about who God is, as well as his son Jesus, the Messiah. Obviously, much more could be said about our Great God, this is simply an introduction. You may hover over the Scripture reference to view the verse in the ESV. References are adapted from the Christian Disciples Church.

“May grace and peace be lavished on you as you grow in the rich knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord!”
