What is Man? The Doctrine of Man

In Christ, God can strengthen and restore us as we serve as his image to rule over creation and to turn the world into his earthly kingdom.


In every culture throughout history, people have asked questions such as, “Who are we?” and “Why are we here?” The Bible tells us that we are God’s images, created to rule over creation on His behalf and to turn the world into His earthly kingdom. Sin has damaged us and complicated our work, but by God’s grace in Christ, we can be restored and our work can be completed.
