Article VI. The Creation

We believe in the Genesis account of creation, and

  1. that it is to be accepted literally, not allegorically nor figuratively (Genesis 1:1; Exodus 20:11; Acts 4:24; Colossians 1:16-17; Hebrews 11:3; John 1:3; Rev. 10:6, Romans 1:20; Acts 17:23-26; Jeremiah 10:12; Nehemiah 9:6);
  2. that man was created directly in God’s own image and after his own likeness (Genesis 1:26-27; 1 Cor. 11:17);
  3. that man’s creation was not a matter of evolution or evolutionary change in species, or in development through interminable periods of time from lower to higher forms (Genesis 2:7; Genesis 2:21-23); and
  4. that all animal and vegetable life was made directly and by God’s established law, that they should bring forth only “after their kind” (Genesis 1:11; Genesis 1:24).
