Question 16. What do we affirm when we say that God is “creator of heaven and earth”?


We affirm that in the beginning, out of nothing, God created all that is. God spoke and all things came into being. Men and women were created in God’s image. Everything that God made was very good.

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Gen 1:3-4 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

Gen 1:27, 31 So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them: male and female he created them. God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.
