The statement "matter can not be created nor destroyed" is not from any law of physics.

Classical physics has the law of conservation of mass.

Relativistic physics has the law of conservation of mass-energy (usually called the law of conservation of energy).

I suggest that you wiki these topics so that you will understand better what you are trying to ask.

Matter can be created and destroyed it is energy that is always conserved. The principle of conservation of mass comes from our intuitive macroscopic experiences but it does not hold true in all circumstances.

Matter can come from energy and vice-verse, but the problem remains. Either it was created or it has always existed.

As God must be an eternal entity, we could also assume that the Creation is an ongoing evolutionary process that always existed and probably always will.

the theory says the big bang created it - does not contradict the religion ("and there was light")

some say that black holes can destroy and create matter like startrekt... suggested. you know the formula E=m*c^2.

so the postulate is "nothing is destroyed or created, everything is transformed" - including energy, not only matter
