Abraham 4:1

Under the direction of the Father, Jesus Christ created the heavens and the earth. Other “noble and great ones” (see Abraham 3:22–24) also played a part in the creation process.

1 And then the Lord said: Let us go down. And they went down at the beginning, and they, that is the Gods, organized and formed the heavens and the earth.

Elder Bruce R. McConkie wrote:

“Christ, acting under the direction of the Father, was and is the Creator of all things. . . . That He was aided in the creation of this earth by ‘many of the noble and great’ spirit children of the Father is evident from Abraham’s writings. . . . Michael or Adam was one of these. Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Peter, James, and John, Joseph Smith, and many other ‘noble and great’ ones played a part in the great creative enterprise.”
