Our mission statement is: "Strengthening the faith of God’s children by grounding them in biblical truth and equipping them to discern error, one divine appointment at a time." Genesis Apologetics is a non-profit organization that is committed to providing Christian families with Biblically- and scientifically-based answers to the evolutionary theory that many children are taught during 6th, 7th, and 10th grades in public schools (in California) and most other states during varying grades.
Our doctrinal position on Creation aligns with www.answersingenesis.com and www.icr.org, two of the largest Creation Apologetic Ministries in the U.S. We do not wish to compete with these excellent research firms, but only wish to act as a conduit for their research, presenting it in simple forms to rebut the evolutionary teachings that students receive in public schools. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit company (tax-exempt status approved), so your contributions to our ministry are welcome!
Our ministry provides practical and easy-to-understand web, video, and written products for youth pastors, parents, and students. The materials provided will be those that are “core” to the Creationist position, which are generally held in agreement with both www.answersingenesis.com and www.icr.org. We generally avoid “fringe” evidences that are controversial between these and other Creationist associations. Our training will also be provided in a spirit of grace and truth (1 Peter 3:15), without unnecessarily developing controversies within the Christian body with believers who hold various views surrounding origins.
However, we realize that contrasting the Biblical position on origins with secular evolution oftentimes requires taking a strong position on controversial subjects like dating and the age of the earth (e.g., the geologic column, dinosaurs, etc.). We have chosen to adhere to the natural reading of Genesis for topics like this. Our financial goal is to seek out and attain funding so that the majority of the training can be provided free whenever possible. We support our mission with the following Bible verses:
- 2 Peter 3:3-7: “Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word, the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters, also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.”
- 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”
