The story begins with God, who has always been. He has always existed and always existed exactly as He is now.

In the beginning, God spoke and everything came into existence. By His Command, the entire universe was created and filled with a dramatic display of galaxies, stars and planets-including the earth. His masterpiece was a man and woman made in his image who were created with the grand purpose of worshiping Him, loving Him, serving Him and enjoying relationship with Him.

During this time there was no pain, suffering, sickness or death. There was complete love, acceptance, and intimacy between God and man, between Adam and Eve, and throughout creation. But something tragic happened…

Adam and Ever were far from being equal to God yet He lovingly placed them in charge of all He had created in Eden. He gave them one rule: not to eat fruit from a specific tree. One day, God’s enemy, a fallen angel named Satan, wanted to overthrow God so he took the form of a serpent and lied to Adam and Eve. He deceived them into thinking God was not good and did not have their best interest in mind. As a result they knowingly disobeyed God. In rebellion they ate the fruit, deciding that they, not God, would determine right and wrong.                 …to be continued.
