Biblical Teaching on Creation

In the Bible, the core of Israel’s faith is not creation but the experience of God’s saving action in history. God as the liberator and saviour. The experience of salvation and liberation is the background of the creation stories, which Yahweh as the Lord of the universe, the supreme God. The belief in creation was an extension of the faith in Yahweh as the God of Covenant, of history and of promises. Thus the doctrine of creation expresses the belief that God is the origin, ground, and goal of the world and of everything in it.
