Yes I DO believe! :) and it means that before anything happened, billions and billions years ago, the universe did not form from a cloud of dust, or whatever people say, buy it's all created by God, the galaxy, earth, heaven, creatures... Me and you.... EVERYTHING! God created us and nothing else!!!:)

The reason for this bible verse is because its is telling you the truth. God put it there because many people in this world get confused with all the false prophecies, so God provided this verse so you can know for sure what is true.
this is the beginning of creation the heavens and the earth. unlike the six creative days there is no time frame at all for the creation of the heavens and the earth. after these all other things were formed. 6 creative days were not literal days. the Bible gives an example that to Jehovah one day is a thousand years.
to my thinking Genesis1:1 means that before any kind of energy or matter existed at all G-D was in existence. for me,it's tough to wrap my mind around the entire concept. but,I can see it as a logical end to how,where,why,and when. I 'm saying when I follow the chain backward we must hit an incomprehensible mystery. regardless of belief or lack of it,something we don't understand and are unable to quantify must necessarily have been there(?),here(?) everywhere(?), but to me that is the divine,the king of creation,G-D. I hope I was able to explain my thoughts clearly. if I didn't, you probably have some ideas of your own that you've worked out over time. later....
In Hebrew it's actually worded strangely because of the way Hebrew sentences are written, like this: "In the beginning created god the heavens and the earth" When the bible was translated this verse was changed so that people who didn't speak Hebrew and did not understand how Hebrew sentences are written would not misunderstand, and think god was created by something else.
Few topics have been the subject of so much speculation as the topic of creation. The average Christian view is that there were seven days of creation during which God, among other things, created the heavens and the earth. This view seems unreasonable to many, since if it was so the earth would have to be no more than a few thousand years old. To bridge this "discrepancy" various assumptions have been made. So, there are those who support that the days of creation in Genesis 1 were much longer than normal twenty four hour days. As we will see later, the Bible does not agree with this theory. Others have gone even further to say that it was all done through......evolution. However, one cannot support this view without a flat denial of the Scripture which declares that God is the creator of everything:
