If God created the Earth and us, then who created God?
Thank you for your question about creation. The Bible is not a scientific text book about how the universe started in much detail, but it does say that God created it.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. (Genesis 1:1-3)
This passage from Genesis shows that God, the Spirit and the Word of God existed at the beginning before anything was created.
It also says that in the beginning was the Word and God. The Word is referring to Jesus Christ. It says that ALL things were made through him. Jesus created everything.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:1-3)
The Bible also says that: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
Jesus said: "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end". (Revelation 22:13)
Jesus is the creator of all things and also the way that all created things can come to know God. Jesus came into His creation as the God Man and lived a perfect life among us so that He could die in our place for the wrong we have done. Jesus made a way for the creation to know the creator.
All of these verses show that God existed at the beginning of everything. There is nothing before God and there will be nothing after God. God has always existed in perfect community of the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Nothing created God as He is God. If God were created then he would not be God. He is the creator of all things and was not created. This is what makes Him uniquely God!
