In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
When God first created the physical universe, including the earth through Jesus Christ, this marked the beginning of the Ages. This did not happen approximately six thousand years ago, as believed by Christians who hold to the Young Earth Creationist view. We reject the Young Earth Creationist View as unbiblical, illogical and unscientific. The Bible does not say how many years ago the Ages began, but it is likely to have been many millions of years ago, as star distances confirm.
Ages do not only begin, they also end. Ages do not continue forever.
When will the Ages end? They will end at the conclusion of God's plan of the Ages as written in Revelation 21:1-6.
