Since God had already created the angels prior to creating man (Job 38:7), and yet still said, "Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness." (Genesis 1:26), this would imply to me both that angels were not created in God's image, and also that humans were like God in a way that the angels were not.

Man, like God, can reason and create.

Man is also a social being, created for fellowship with God and other humans, modeled after the fellowship that the Persons of the Trinity have with one another.

Angels, although they have free will, as well as emotions and intelligence, were created to praise, obey, and serve.
