Confession – Perfect Humanity

I BELIEVE… 

Adam and Eve were literal, historical persons that God created as the first man and woman; that our human genealogy begins with them.

Adam and Eve were created by God as His crowning act of creation.

Adam was created by God using the dust of the earth; that God breathed life into him; that he was to name all the animals that God had created.

Eve was created by God using one of Adam’s ribs as he slept; that she was to be Adam’s companion and helper.

Adam and Eve were created in God’s image, to carry His image to the rest of creation, being “fruitful” and increasing in number.

Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden of Eden by God with the instruction to care for and tend the garden and all of the animals, and to govern and populate the earth, so all may know Him and enjoy His presence and experience His fullness; that they were fully enabled for their task.

Adam and Eve were created perfectly without blemish, corruption, or sin; that they were “good” in all conceivable ways as God intended, being made in His image; that their will was perfectly aligned with God’s will.

Adam and Eve were given the freedom to obey or disobey God.

Adam and Eve were created to live in fellowship with God and in mutually helpful relationships with each other; that they would honor and worship their creator in whatsoever activity they engaged in, both in work and in rest.

Adam and Eve were given all of creation for their use and enjoyment; that God provided them and the animals with green plants to eat; that their only prohibition was not to eat of “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”.

Adam and Eve lived with all the animals in peace.

God’s creation and humanity were purposed for shalom.

  May God’s beautiful creation bless all who gaze upon
her wherein she may draw all people unto Him!
