Big Truth:

There is Only One God

Deuteronomy 4:35, 4:39; 1 Kings 8:60, 1 Corinthians 8:4; Ephesians 4:6; Jude 25

Bible Verse:

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.”

Deuteronomy 6:4

Big Ideas:

  • God is one. There is only one God. There are no other gods.
  • There is no being like God. He is the most powerful, smartest, most controlling force in existence.
  • Since there is only one God, He is the most important being—past, present, and future.

Bible Passage:

Exodus 32-33

God is the only God and He alone deserves and should be worshiped. The Israelites disobey God when they create a golden calf as an idol. God reminds them that He alone is the true God and the most important being in existence.


“God is.” God exists. There is only one God, and He is the only one worthy of our worship and praise. And, by His grace and mercy, He has made Himself known to us. We do not worship one who is distant from us or who is uninvolved with His creation. This series walks through nine attributes– nine realities that unpack who God is. These realities are so foundational that preschoolers can learn them, and yet are so deep that they impact and inform every aspect of our lives throughout our entire lives.

During the summer, elementary through high school are aligned under the same Big Truths, Bible passages, and Big Ideas as we invite families to return to the foundational truths of who God is.
