 Created to Reflect: The Image of God in Humanity

This week we examine the biblical truth that God created humans in His image with the purpose of glorifying Him and enjoying Him forever. Because we are made in the image of God, we have innate worth and value and are different from the rest of creation. But due to our sin, the image of God in humanity has been shattered, and we fail to fulfill our purpose. Thankfully, God has a plan to restore us through His Son.
