What is Creation Ministries International Ltd?
Creation Ministries International Ltd. is an
organization, controlled by Christians in the
to researching, developing, and promoting
Christian creationist materials, and Christian
school texts and aids. Our work is based on
The Bible is the written Word of God. It is
divinely inspired and inerrant throughout.
The final guide to the interpretation of
Scripture is Scripture itself.
The account of origins presented in Genesis
is a simple but factual presentation of actual
events and therefore provides a reliable
question of the origin and history of life,
mankind, the earth and the universe.
Scripture teaches a recent origin for man and
the whole creation.
The great Flood of Genesis was an actual
historic event, worldwide (global) in its extent
The special creation of Adam (as one man)
and Eve (as one woman) and their subsequent
fall into sin, is the basis for the necessity of
salvation for mankind (and thus for the Gospel
of Jesus Christ).
The;scientific;aspects;of;creation;are;im-portant, but are secondary in importance to
the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
as Sovereign, Creator, Redeemer and Judge.
Please note that in all of this, we openly proclaim
that our work is centred around Jesus Christ. We
are convinced that the real needs of men and
women can only be met by reconciliation to God
through faith in and commitment to Jesus Christ
the Creator, as Lord and Saviour.

» Brian Thomas and Jonathan Sarfati
Most mammals self-regulate their population in such a way that largely
negates the Darwinian survival-of-the-fittest law and thus falsifies the
main driver of evolution.

Middle Eastern genetic roots?
