We believe that God is the Creator of all. This is not only found in Genesis 1, but throughout the Scriptures. In the NT, the Apostle John begins his gospel account saying “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:1-3). The Prophets in the OT referred to God as the creator as an affront to false gods who created nothing, rather were themselves created by human hands.
God is Creator and all powerful. We understand from Genesis 1 that the method with which God created is speaking; from nothing God spoke and there was something. He is the Author; therefore has sovereign authority over and in all He authored. Hebrews 1:3 says we believe this is true “by faith.”
To prepare for this Sunday with Westover read through Hebrews 11 and the accounts of faith in God, praying that God would strengthen your faith in Him.
