Purpose: In this session we shall look to the New Testament and what it teaches concerning God’s omnipresence so that we would draw implications for our lives.

  1. General affirmation on God’s omnipresence
  2. The omnipresence of the members of the Trinity
  3. The omnipresence of God and the Great Commission
  4. Distinction between general and moral presence
