If you start off with nothing, or only the raw materials, then you create something.
That is what you mean by God creating animals.

To develop something is to take something that already exists and make it better, or to take a simple idea and produce something more useful or interesting from it.

Both of your sentences would be correct grammatically, if you add the 's' on 'creatures'.

1. All living creatures were once CREATED by god
2. All living creatures were once DEVELOPED BY god.

The Christian/Jewish/Muslim religion normally uses 'created'.
However, if you think that human beings are, on average, six inches taller than they were a thousand of fifteen hundred years ago, HUNDREDS of new breeds of dog have appeared - and so on - then "developed" is definitely not incorrect.
It is just not mentioned so much as the original creation from nothing which is talked about in Genesis.
