Is there a God? Who made the universe? How did all of this get here? Did life evolve from nothing? Is there a purpose to our existence? Why is there suffering in the world? Was the entire earth under water? Where did all of the different nations of people and languages come from? Does the God of the universe know me? Can I know Him? Join us this as we begin a new study of the Book of Genesis and discover the answer to these and many more of our greatest questions.
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Is the earth billions of years old or less than 10,000 years old? Can science and the Bible be reconciled? The answer is, “Yes.” This Sunday we continue our study of the Book of Genesis focusing on the creation of the earth.
In 2017 the documentary, “Is Genesis History?” was released; it “explores the world to see how it intersects with the stories related in Genesis. Del Tackett of ‘The Truth Project’ hikes through canyons, climbs mountains, and dives below the sea to examine two competing views – one compelling truth.” In light of our current sermon series, we believe this movie does a very good job in answering the question it proposes and encourage its viewing. It is available on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good;
In the creation story of Genesis, the words “it was good.” appear seven times. Today, however, we see brokenness, damage, disaster and death; we can confuse the God who is good with the condition of creation today. We need to remember that things today are not as they were. Also, we need to remind ourselves that things will one day be, not as they are. As followers of Jesus Christ we have a bright and glorious future ahead. This Sunday we will look back in time through the rearview mirror of Scripture and see a time when God said, “It was good.”
