From the Speakers

Though our love for science is considerable, it pales in comparison to our love and devotion to our Lord Jesus Christ. We are committed to the authority and inerrancy of Scripture. We affirm the core doctrines of the Christian faith, including the reality of miracles and the bodily resurrection of Christ. We further assert that modern science, as delightful as it may be, is not necessary to understand the central message of any Scripture.
