The Creation Research Centre exists to seek evidence for the Biblical account of Creation, Noah’s Flood, Tower of Babel and related subjects. We investigate and promote such evidence in order to glorify Christ and build His church.
Numerous reports from evangelists across the globe show the most common complaint received while preaching is: “Why are you wasting your time telling us about Jesus Christ, when we know Adam and Eve are not true?” The dilemma? How do we reach people for Christ who have been immunised against the gospel by the theory of evolution? Creation Research grew out of this request and our aim is to reach the millions indoctrinated to believe man evolved from ape-like ancestors. Therefore, they reject the Bible as false, creation as myth, and Christ as irrelevant. It is also our aim to encourage God’s people to know they can fully trust Christ and His Word concerning creation and reach out confidently to a world full of evolutionists who reject the gospel.
Converted by Christ from drug addiction, a young man sat in our office sharing how he became a Christian. He had discovered abundant evidence that Christ had lived, died, and risen from the dead. Yet he rejected it as irrelevant, because he had been taught evolution was fact and creation false. A Christian loaned him a book by a man of science who was also a man of God. The book dealt with the overwhelming scientific evidence for creation and the flood. After one week, the drug addict put his faith in Christ as Saviour because the facts confirmed the Scriptures were reliable. Creation was true and Christ was Creator and Redeemer.
Such a situation ought not to surprise us. Christ stated (Luke 16:31) “If they don’t accept Moses (Creation, the Flood, Babel, the Law…) they won’t be convinced by the resurrection.” Increasingly in societies based on evolution, people reject Christ without consideration. To reach them, we must, like Paul, “Contend for the faith” and break down the barriers of evolutionary humanism with the factual truths of Genesis and the faith of Christ as Creator.
A newly converted farmer wanted to reach out to the neighbours in his valley. When he began, most said they were not interested in the Bible, because at school they had learnt that Genesis, the first book, was wrong. Everyone was sure evolution was right. He bought all the books he could lay his hands on about creation and started anew. He held Bible studies in his home on creation. The results – many of his neighbours are now Christians.
How We Achieve Our Mission
Over the last 16 years, the Lord has enabled us to visit and research the dinosaur fields of Canada and the USA; the human fossil fields in the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand and United Kingdom; the Grand Canyon, the coal fields of the Western World, the beautiful world of tropical orchids and much, much more. We went not only to preach in these places, but to collect and record the evidence of God’s grandeur in creation and His awesome power in the judgement of Noah’s flood. This material has been presented throughout the western world to both lay and technical audiences with the same aim – remove the weeds of doubt caused by evolution, plough up the hard ground of scepticism, and sow the seeds of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The fossil fields of the world have provided us with some magnificent specimens of fossil Nautilus shells (supposedly 200 million years old). But a fossil Nautilus is identical to a living Nautilus, proving what God said in Genesis true – things produce after their own kind. It doesn’t matter how old you think fossils are or what fossil group you pick, the rocks bear testimony to this one fact. It is our task to display these fossils in schools and churches etc. to show fact and faith go hand in hand.
Psalm 26:7 sums it up nicely:
“That we may publish with the voice of thanksgiving and tell of all God’s wondrous works.”
- We proclaim the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ;
- Believing the Bible is the written word of God. It is divinely inspired and inerrant throughout. Its assertions are factually true, and it is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
- We accept the final guide to the interpretation of Scripture is Scripture;
- Understanding that the account of origins presented in Genesis is a simple but factual presentation of actual events and therefore provides a reliable framework for research into the origin and history of life.
- So, we research, document and promote the scientific aspects of creation as important, but they are secondary to the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ as Sovereign, Creator, Sustainer, Saviour, Lord and Judge, who is an equal member of the triune Godhead – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
