“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

Genesis 1:1 (NIV)

Do you believe this opening verse of the Bible? Worldwide, some do, but many do not. Your answer to this question is foundational toward finding meaning in life.

If this verse is not true and the earth started with a Big Bang, maybe it doesn’t really matter. Just live your time on this earth as you please and then it’s all over. Nothing more.

Conversely, if there is a God and He made our universe, it seems logical that we need to learn about our Creator. Who is He? What is He like? Why are we here? How can we please Him?

Do we simply need to exercise “blind” faith to believe there is a God and that He is our Creator? No. The Bible is the most widely distributed book in history-and the most scrutinized. With each passing year discoveries in the areas of science, archaeology, geography, sociology, and other disciplines further validate the genuineness of the Bible.

The Bible is God’s Word to us: up-to-date and relevant. You can trust it as a road map for your life.
