Westminster Confession of Faith

Chapter 2: Of God, and of the Holy Trinity

2: God has all life,[49] glory,[50] goodness,[51] blessedness,[52] in and of Himself; and is alone in and unto Himself all-sufficient, not standing in need of any creatures which He has made,[53] nor deriving any glory from them,[54] but only manifesting His own glory in, by, unto, and upon them. He is the alone fountain of all being, of whom, through whom, and to whom are all things;[55] and has most sovereign dominion over them, to do by them, for them, or upon them whatsoever Himself pleases.[56] In His sight all things are open and manifest,[57] His knowledge is infinite, infallible, and independent upon the creature,[58] so as nothing is to Him contingent, or uncertain.[59] He is most holy in all His counsels, in all His works, and in all His commands.[60] To Him is due from angels and men, and every other creature, whatsoever worship, service, or obedience He is pleased to require of them.[61]
