Big Truth:

God Made Us In His Image

Genesis 5:1; Ephesians 4:24; James 3:9

Bible Verse:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

Genesis 1:27

Big Ideas:

  • We have value and worth because God is ultimately valuable.
  • We long for companionship because God is a communal being.
  • We have purpose because we were created to reflect God to the world.

Bible Story:

Genesis 1:26-31; 2:4-7

After God created the heavens and the earth, He created man. He created Adam first and then He made Eve, Adam’s companion. God created mankind in His own image as a reflection of Himself to the world.


The Story is the good news of the gospel. All of Scripture tells the Story of God the Father’s work to redeem a people from the power of sin through God the Son so that they might live for His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit. During this series we will explore the four main movements of the Story of God, and our response to the life-altering Gospel Story!
