CREATION

#6. God is the creator of all good things, and has revealed in Scripture the authentic account of His creative activity. In six literal days the Lord made “the heaven and the earth” and all the living things therein, and rested on the seventh day of that first week. Thus originated the seven day weekly cycle. The first man and woman were made in the image of God as the crowning work of creation, given dominion over the world, and charged with responsibility to care for it. When the world was finished it was “very good” declaring the glory of God. (Gen. 1; 2:1-3; Ex. 20:8-11, 31; Ps. 19:1, 2; 33:6, 9; 104; John 1:1-3, 14; Col. 1:14-17; Heb. 11:3; 2 Pet. 3:4, 5).
