Christians believe that the Trinity was present at the creation of the world. God the Father is the creator, but Genesis 1 shows that the Holy Spirit also had a role:
The Spirit of God was hovering over the water. And God said, ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light (Genesis 1:2–3).
The Gospel of John also describes the role of the Son of God (Jesus), referring to him as the ‘Word’:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made.John 1:1
According to the book of Genesis, what did God create first?
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).
