How Many God(s) Is/Are There?

Oct 27, 2016 | Heavenly Mother

With regards to Christianity, many think that there is only one God. However, what does the Bible testify?

Genesis 1:26  Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

The first chapter of the Bible testifies to the plural Gods when we see the words “us” and “our”. If there had been only one God, it would have been written as, “Let me make mankind in my image, in my likeness”. Then how many God(s) are there?

Genesis 1:27  So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 

When we see the subsequent verse, male and female were created according to God’s image and likeness. The Bible testified to two images of God—male and female.

We can understand this through an example in the illustration below.

How many people were Sally’s picture based on? Two People.

As for the male image of God, Christians call Him God the Father. Then what should we call the female image of God? The Bible testifies that she is God the Mother.

The Bible continues to express that there is more than one God in other verses of the Bible.

Genesis 11:6-7  The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

Isaiah 6:8  Then I heard the voice of the LORD saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Thus, we can come to understand there is definitely more than one God. Regardless of the language of the Bible—English, Mandarin, Malay, Hindi—you will see that the Bible uses the plural term, “us”.

    Many people have known God the Father but haven’t known God the Mother.
    But the bible testifies not only God the Father but also God the the Mother.
    This is very important. We need to know about that.

    Ohhhh there’s so many verses about the existence of Gods 😕 how come didn’t see them before. Definitely need to read the next article to find out 😞

  14. Mel B

    it is worth noticing since the Bible clearly testifies that there are two Gods; God the Father n God the Mother. Is it natural that a family consists a father and mother and children? It is the same with a heavenly family.

    • elohist4ever (@elohist4ever)


      It’s natural that there should be Mother if there is Father.
      I give thanks to Elohim God!

  15. canes

    The truth about Heavenly Mother is so amazing.

  16. Dennis

    Because there is God the Mother as well as God the Father, God called himself “us”.
    We should know about God exactly to be saved. So thanks to Elohim God for letting me realize Heavenly Father n Mother!

  17. Jess

    Bible clearly testify the plurality of God!
    we have not only God the Father but also God the Mother.

  18. Kim

    Thanks for teaching me the truth that we are under the law of Christ(the New covenant) not under the law of Moses(the Old covenant).

  19. E.F

    Wow, I was made according to the image of female God! If God the Mother doesn’t exist, I cannot exist, too. God the Mother should exist!

  20. Smiles

    Oh 😲 not only Genesis shows that there’s more than 1 God! Who is this Gods that bible is trying to tell us ???

  21. Jane

    It’s very interesting that God said “us”. Thanks to God for letting me know this fact. I hope all people in the world know this fact.

  22. GX

    Male image of God + Female image of God = Elohim

    1 + 1 = 2

    Thanks to Heavenly Father and Mother!

  23. Lena

    I would like people reading this to not take just these words in the article above alone as the only testimony about God the Father and God the Mother’s existence. There is more to tell that can be seen in the Bible, if only we first allow God to reveal the truth to us step-by-step. I hope we may seek this truth together through God’s words in the Bible and not based on man’s opinion.

  24. KimM

    I have known the Sabbath day of bible as sunday until now. Through Church of God I recognize the Sabbath day of bible is saturday not sunday . Thanks to God give me a spiritual sensitivity ^^

  25. Eddy

    Just a quick question since you quoted Genesis 11:6-7, can the “us” be referring to God (single) and his angels, as if as God is speaking to his angels in Heaven?

    • Steffi

      Hi Eddy, when you look at the Hebrew Bible, the original text, the Lord is Elohim, which is plural – Gods.
      If we replace it will be, Gods said, “Come let US” – so the US refer to GODS ^^ not God & the angels.
      Hope it’s clearer for you ^^

  26. Iris

    Wow, I didnt know that there are verses in other parts of Genesis and even the book of Isaiah about the plurality of God! The bible is truly full of mysteries!

  27. Angela

    In this world, there are male and female. They are created by God’s image. It means two Gods exist. It’s clear!

    • Mark

      Truly, all living creatures in the world were created according to God’s will for our salvation!
      There always exist father and mother for each living being! An accident? Not at all!

  28. yq

    Wow !! IT is amazing that we are able to know the fact that we have God the Father and God the Mother. I am glad that i am able to know all these facts through this article.
