Upcoming Conference: Our Summer 2017 conference
will be held on the Mequon campus of Concordia University Wisconsin July 7-8, 2017. The topic is "The Age of the Earth." Online registration is now available. We are finalizing other information about the conference schedule. We anticipate holding a "creation basics" day at the start of the conference for those who are new to the creation movement. More information is available here.
Welcome to the website of the Society of Creation, founded in August 2011. We were originally an organization of full-time faculty in various academic disciplines who teach at most of the ten institutions of the Concordia University System (CUS). Since then we have expanded our reach. We also welcome members who support our mission but are not CUS faculty. You don't need to be a faculty member to join us.
Our goals include support of the historic position of
The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod on creation, encouragement of the same, and education. Our charter states, "To provide support, education, affirmation, and encouragement for those who teach the historic position of the LCMS on the doctrine of creation and to affirm the biblical position on creation." We do not take positions on other issues, relevant though they may be.
The photos on the left and above were taken in (left) or near (above) the Grand Canyon in July of 2012. The Grand Canyon contains much evidence for the worldwide flood of Noah, but also much beauty. Those who hold to a worldwide flood, as described in Genesis 6-9 almost always understand the creation story in Genesis 1 as a straightforward account.
