INFINITE

Unlimited in extent of space, duration, and quantity. Though scripture does not use the term infinite to describe God, theologians have found the term a suitable summary of several attributes of God. God is not limited by space, (Psalms 139:7-8). God is not limited by time: God existed before the creation (Genesis 1:1); the ordering of time is part of God's creative activity (Genesis 1:5). Because God is spirit (John 4:24), God cannot be quantified like a material object. God is regarded as infinite in many other qualities: God's steadfast love endures forever (Psalms 100:5); God's knowledge extends to the fall of a single sparrow and the number of hairs on our heads (Matthew 10:29-30; compare Psalms 139:1-6); God is “the Almighty” (Genesis 17:1; Exodus 6:3).
