Genesis 1:1-2

God is our great Creator. He is the beginning of all things and the giver of all life. He made everything that we see in our world and in the heavens. He is the most powerful of all beings. Not only did God make everything, He rescues us through His Word, His Son, Jesus Christ.



God created everything. Everything we see, hear, feel, taste, and that exists was created by Him. Not only did He create everything, but He created everything perfectly, including humanity. He created mankind in His very image and likeness to reflect His worth. All of creation was made just like He wanted and designed it to be. To His delight, God looked at everything He made and declared that it was good. All creation exists for God, is good, and was created to bring Him glory.
