What Do Lutherans Believe About Creation? PDF Print E-mail

Lutherans believe that God is Creator of the universe.  Its dimensions of space and time are not something God made once and then left alone.  God is, rather, continually creating, calling into being each moment of each day.

Human beings have a unique position in the order of creation.  As males and females created in God's image, we are given the capacity and freedom to know and respond to our creator.  Freedom implies that we can choose to respond to God either positively or negatively.
