What does the Bible teach about humankind?
“Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness… So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female.”
— Genesis 1:27-28
Mankind is the special creation of God, made in God’s own image as His highest creation.
He created them male and female; each person was born a boy or a girl as a part of God’s good plan. Our life purpose is to know God and enjoy Him forever.
