And God Said

Genesis 1:3-25 | Sermon Resources | 30 April 2023


Pastor Billy continues in our Genesis sermon series coming this week to Genesis 1:3-25 and the six days of creation. Focusing on three key verbs in the passage (God said, God separated, God saw), we will spend time contemplating the God of power who spoke the universe into existence.
