Westminster Shorter Catechism #10

Question 10:

How did God create man?

Answer:

God created man male and female, after his own image, in knowledge, righteousness, and holiness, with dominion over the creatures.

“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number, fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.'” Genesis 1:16-28

“…and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” Colossians 3:10

“…and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:24
