Learn more online at
Friday 27th evening:
6:00 PM – Doors open.
6:30 – 7:30 PM - The Christian Roots of Science & busting evolutionary myths
Why did science flourish in the West, and only the West? The biblical worldview provided the presuppositions that allowed science to flourish while it was stillborn in other places such as Greece and China. Evolutionists deny this biblical foundation for science by accusing Christianity of superstitions that held science back. Jonathan deftly busts the myth of the ‘Dark Ages’—a time marked by many scientific advances. He also busts the myths of Galileo, belief in a flat earth, and more.
8:00 – 9:00 PM – Jesus and Genesis.
See how the whole Bible, right from the beginning, points to Jesus Christ as God and man, and Savior. The time, place and manner of His birth and His mission are just what the prophets foretold. Genesis is foundational to all this teaching.
Saturday 28th morning:
8:30 AM- Doors open.
9:00 – 10:00 AM - Is Genesis a Literal History? Refuting Compromise from the Scripture
A six day, young earth understanding of Genesis is the only one that comes from the Biblical text itself, which is why the rest of Scripture interprets it that way. Long-age views are a modern aberration that comes from imposing outside ideas of uniformitarian so called “science” upon the text. See how compromising views render the Bible meaningless to a dying world. You’ll be encouraged and energized to hear there is no need for compromise and that there are answers. The evidence for Creation and the Bible’s account of history is all around us, if only we know how to look for it, and Jonathan will show you how to do just that!
10:30 – 11:30 AM - Chemicals to Living Cells: Fantasy or Science?
See how ‘goo-to-you’ evolution is refuted right at the start! In this fascinating illustrated lecture, a Ph.D. chemist shows how the laws of real chemistry prevent non-living chemicals from arranging themselves into living cells. Self-reproducing cells have far more complexity than Darwin imagined.
11:30 AM – 1:00 PM Lunch Break
Saturday 28th afternoon:
1:00 – 2:00 PM - Bioethics: Issues of life, death, and morality
The right view of the Genesis Creation enables us to think clearly about ‘life’ issues such as abortion, euthanasia, cloning, animal rights, stem cells, etc. Conversely, consistent evolutionary thinking undermines the biblical sanctity of innocent human life, as in Nazi Germany.
2:30 – 3:15 PM – Jurassic Reality: Dinosaurs & the Most-asked Questions – Answered!
People of all ages are captivated by dinosaurs. Unfortunately, evolutionists use dinosaurs to indoctrinate the young and the old with an earth history that includes millions of years but has no room for the Bible. This presentation will show the power of a person’s starting assumptions (or “worldview”) when interpreting past events, and will define the different types of sciences used in investigating the world around us, with a thorough exploration of these enigmatic lizards. Let’s take dinosaurs to the Bible and see what God’s word has to say about them!
Sunday 29th morning:
10:30 – 12:00 AM Morning Services - Design, Deluge & Dilemma
• Widespread apostasy in young people—not because of lack of evidence, but lack of dissemination of the evidence.
• Jesus as Creator, as well as Kinsman-Redeemer, meaning that He must be our blood relative. This means that all humanity must come from Adam, also the ancestor of Jesus, the Last Adam. Adam's sin brought death, so Jesus brought Resurrection—Rom. 5 and 1 Cor. 15 make an explicit connection.
• Since death came through sin, fossil record must post-date Adam. Explained by Genesis global Flood, which has other evidences.
• Design in nature, including micro-machines. Coded information stored on DNA.
• Goo-to-you evolution requires information increase, but what we see are sorting out already-existing information, natural selection culling information, and mutations corrupting information.
