Baptist Catechism 1-3

Question 1: Who is the first and chiefest being?

Answer: God is the first and chiefest being (Is. 44:6; 48:12; Ps. 97:9).

***

Question 2: Ought everyone to believe there is a God?

Answer: Everyone ought to believe there is a God (Heb. 11:6); and it is their great sin and folly who do not (Ps. 14:1).

***

Question 3: How may we know there is a God?

Answer: The light of nature in man and the works of God plainly declare there is a God (Rom. 1:19,20; Ps. 19:1, 2, 3; Acts 17:24); but his word and Spirit only do it fully and effectually for the salvation of sinners (1 Cor. 2:10; 2 Tim. 3:15,16).
