Apostles’ Creed First Article

In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, 2the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. 3Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.5God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. (Genesis 1:1-5, NRSV)

I believe in God the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and Earth…

There is a lot in this first article and a lot in the first 5 verses of Genesis…

I actually read somewhere that in the beginning is not a good translation for the Hebrew word here. It should be more when God started creating… Meaning God existed well before creation, and this really isn’t the beginning… I was also taught that the first letter of Genesis is the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which implies that something came before this.

All of this to me means that God is bigger than this, and everything we can imagine.

But even though God is bigger than my imagination God still created a place for me to be and me. And not only a place for me to be on Earth but a place for me to be in the Heavens. God created all and because of that I have life and share His love with the world.
