THE WESTMINSTER LARGER CATECHISM

Question 2:

Q: How does it appear that there is a God?

A: The very light of nature in man, and the works of God, declare plainly that there is a God (Rom. 1:19–20; Ps. 19:1–3; Acts 17:28); but His word and Spirit only do sufficiently and effectually reveal Him unto men for their salvation (1 Cor. 2:9–10; 2 Tim. 3:15–17; Isa. 59:21).
