The Beginning

May 27, 2018 • Doug Sauder

Genesis is a book of firsts. The origins of the universe, the earth, life, marriage, family, nations, laws, languages. The first few chapters orient us to everything we see in life. Why is that important? Because in our origins we find the answers to life's big questions . . . Who am I? Why am I here? What's the meaning of life? In this first message of our "Origins" series, Pastor Doug shares the story of creation from Genesis 1:1–25, showing us some powerful, beautiful characteristics of God while unpacking everything leading up to the creation of humanity.
