God Is Knowable

  VALUE SHIFTS -  Changes in perspective and values to align our reality to that of God’s greater plan.

A compelling and impactful aspect of God’s nature is his knowability. God is not a distant, mythical, unverifiable being. Rather, he is near and personal to his creation. In being knowable, believers experience a transformation in their lives as there is purpose and reward to pursuing God with knowledge of him. God’s knowability leads to an intimate relationship with him, which leads to God-intended joy and fulfillment in the life of the believer.
