The Great Spirit

"And Ammon began to speak unto...unto him: Believest thou that there is a God?
And he answered...I do not know what that meaneth.
And then Ammon said: Believest thou that there is a Great Spirit?
And he said, Yea.

And Ammon said: This is God. And Ammon said unto him again: Believest thou that this Great Spirit, who is God, created all things which are in heaven and in the earth?
And he said: Yea, I believe that he created all things...."
  (Alma 18:24-29)
