Created: In the Beginning GOD

Created: In the Beginning GOD (Genesis 1:1)

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

I. We acknowledge God to be the maker of heaven and earth. (Genesis 1:1; Apostles’ Creed; Nicene Creed)

II. The universe had a definite beginning. (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:1-2; Colossians 1:16-17)

III. The universe was created by God out of nothing (Ex Nihilo) by His Word. (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 147:4; Psalm 19:1; Romans 1:20; Hebrews 11:3)

IV. We are accountable to God our Creator. (1 Corinthians 6:20; 1 Peter 3:5-7)

V. True wisdom begins with Genesis 1:1. (Proverbs 3:19; John 1:1)

What does it mean to say, “I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth?”

“I believe that God has created me and all that exists; that he has given and still preserves my body and soul, my eyes and ears, and all my members, my reason and all the power of my soul, together with food and raiment, home and family, and all my property; that he daily provides abundantly for all the needs of my life, protects me from all danger, and guards and keeps me from all evil; and that he does this purely out of fatherly and divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me; for all which I am in duty bound to thank, praise, serve, and obey him.” Martin Luther
