There are various verses in scripture that speak of how man and woman are created in the image of God, with specific purpose in mind.
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him.” (ESV)For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139:13-16 (ESV)
