Highlight from "Living Faith" on Humanity created in the "Image of God"

From The Study Catechism, PCUSA (1998):

"Question 16: What does it mean to say that we human beings are created in the image of God?

That God created us to live together in love and freedom--with God, with one another, and with the world. Our distinctive capacities--reason, imagination, volition and so on--are given primarily for this purpose. We are created to to be loving companions of others so that something of God's goodness may be reflected in our lives."
