In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.Genesis 1:1

Genesis is the first book of the Bible. It is divided into three parts. Genesis 1 describes the creation of Heaven and Earth. Genesis 2 focuses on the creation of the first humans, Adam and Eve. In Genesis 3, Christians learn how Adam and Eve disobeyed God and brought sin into the world.

Genesis 1 explains how:

  • God is the only creator.
  • God existed before he created the world.
  • The world was well planned and is sustained by God.
  • God blessed creation, which means that all creation is holy.
  • God created everything in Heaven and on Earth in six days.
  • On the seventh day, God rested.
