Bible Story:

Genesis 1

In the beginning, there was God. God existed perfectly and righteously. He needed nothing because He was and is completely satisfied in Himself. Though God was complete, He chose to create the heavens, the earth, and mankind. God made these things to bring Himself glory.



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.
