Portions from Theopedia and CARM

The Christian doctrine of creation asserts that God is the creator of all things, for "[i]n the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth" (Gen 1:1). God created by his word (Gen 1:3; Heb 11:3), and "[a]ll things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made (John 1:3).

  • God created the physical and spiritual universe out of nothing (Gen. 1:1f; Psalm 33:6; John 1:3; Rom. 4:17; 1 Cor. 1:28). 

  • He did not make the world out of part of Himself. He did not make the world out of a substance called "nothing." 

  • Specifically it was Jesus, the firstborn (Col. 1:15), second person of the Trinity, who created all things (Col. 1:16-17; Isaiah 44:24). 

  • Because God created all things, He is before all things and beyond all things. Therefore, the entire universe is under His control. 

  • Because God created all things, He is able to provide for His creation through the means of His creation, i.e. weather, rain, plants, animals, sunshine, etc.
