Creation of Heaven and Earth
From the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Simplified
The First Act of Creation (279-281)
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Gen 1:1). The Church says that God is the "Creator of heaven and earth" and "of all that is seen and unseen."
God's saving plan begins with creation and culminates in Christ who reveals God's plan the glory of a new creation in Christ (Rom 8:18-23).
