God has always existed from eternity past. (That is, there was never a time when He did not exist.) He created the universe, and He controls it, but He is not a component of it. Because He is three eternal Persons (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) in one Being, He is sufficient unto Himself, and does not require any other being or condition for His existence. 

John 1:1-3 says that it was through God's Word (that is, God the Son) that God created the universe.

The late English theologian C. S. Lewis incuded an excellent discussion of this in his short work Mere Christianity (fully readable at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AHo2geMH6Ci5YWS1Mz-GpMJ422YzbfrSK70uiNHeApk/edit) which I would recommend to anyone seeking a greater understanding in this area.
