Creation


Saturday... January 26, 2019

In the beginning, God created—out of nothing—everything that exists “in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible” (Col 1:16). Nothing exists apart from God’s creation. Every person and all living creatures receive their life from God and depend on His care. God created by His Word. He spoke creation into existence, forming and filling it in six days (Gen 1:1, 3, 31; Psalm 33:6, 9).

In the beginning everything was very good, but Adam’s fall into sin brought trials, disease, and death. So, God the Father sent His only Son into the world to become man and to redeem and save us by His death and resurrection. In Christ we are a new creation (2 Cor 5:17).

There a lot of competing accounts of how the world came into existence, such as, pantheism, atheistic evolution and theistic evolution. But all of these theories lead to unbiblical conclusions and they deny the truth in Scripture.

Please come to the North Texas Free Conference and learn more about our Creator and Redeemer.
