The Creator God

In the Beginning

The opening verses of the Bible describe God creating the world.

There is no philosophical argument about: “Does God exist?” The Bible nowhere attempts to “prove” the existence of God. The Bible assumes God’s existence. It opens immediately by stating:

“In the beginning God …”

Genesis 1:1

God as Creator

The Bible teaches that God created our universe out of nothing – that he is the Creator of all human life. Genesis asserts:

“God created man

in his own image,

in the image of God

he created him;

male and female

he created them.”

Genesis 1:27

God is Called Creator

The title, Creator, is given to God in several places in the Bible.

“Remember your Creator.”

Ecclesiastes 12:1

“They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is for ever praised. Amen.”

Romans 1:25

“Do you not know?

Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.”

Isaiah 40:28

God’s Purpose in Creation

Why did God create the world and everything that lives in it? It’s not really possible to think of God existing if he could not express:

•     his creative power

“For by him [God] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.”

Colossians 1:15–16

•     his authority and wisdom

“But God made the earth by his power;

he founded the world by his wisdom

and stretched out the heavens by his understanding.”

Jeremiah 10:11–12

•     his love

“I provide [for] … the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.”

Isaiah 43:20–21

“I have loved you with an everlasting love;

I have drawn you with loving-kindness.”

Jeremiah 31:3
