This Week's Sermon: "Why Did God Create the World?"

The ultimate purpose for which God created this world is the praise of the glory of his grace in the death of Jesus for sinners.

Recognizing that God exists isn't enough. The question is: why does anything else exist? Why did God create the world? And in particular, why this world?

Working through key texts, John Piper shows the Bible's answer to life's biggest question and how it's connected to the cross.
