Is there a God?

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent. (from the Bible, John 17:3)

And now Korihor said unto Alma: If thou wilt show me a sign, that I may be convinced that there is a God, yea, show unto me that he hath power, and then will I be convinced of the truth of thy words. But Alma said unto him: Thou hast had signs enough; will ye tempt your God? Will ye say, Show unto me a sign, when ye have the testimony of all these thy brethren, and also all the holy prophets? The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator. (from the Book of Mormon, Alma 30:43-44)

The Book of Mormon stands together with the Bible in declaring strong testimony of the reality of God's existence. I know that there is a God. As I have sought Him in prayer and as I have tried to keep his commandments, my life has been richly blessed. A knowledge of God's existence has given my life sweetness and purpose. I am confident God desires that we come to know Him and understand His character and attributes, that we might become more like Him.
