What we do

1. Speaking and direct ministry

Each office has its own speaking staff (who generally perform other functions) whose role it is to go out to where the people are and reach them with the message of the truth and authority of the Bible, and its relevance to the real world. We’ve found that an extremely effective way to get this message out into the population in general, and thus to increase the number of people getting converted, etc. is to arm and equip Christians. We

Our accredited and experienced speakers do this ‘linking and feeding’ mostly via

  1. direct ministry in church services (the most effective way, because many people are reached and ‘switched on’ to the power of creation evangelism who would not have thought it important enough to come to a special meeting on the subject).
  2. public meetings, advertised through churches in particular (NB we are ‘arming God’s army’)
  3. in-depth seminars
  4. family camps and live-in conferences, both those which we organize ourselves and those to which we are invited as speakers.
  5. other means: breakfast meetings, media interviews and so on.

2. Publishing

a) Periodicals: CMI produces

b) Books: CMI has published/produced some of the most popular creation books of all time. For example, The Creation Answers Book, Refuting Evolution (1 and 2) and Refuting Compromise, which have between them had a distribution of well over a million copies globally. Answers to 4 Big Questions has been used in witnessing efforts at two Olympic Games and is available in several languages other than English. We keep updating our materials, and working on new ones.

c) Multimedia resources. DVDs, CDs, etc.

Our position on science issues, etc.

You will find that our team of scientists/speakers globally are almost always of ‘one voice’ in their positions on various issues that may be the subject of controversy even within creationist circles. This is because we consciously spend time interacting with our peers both inside and outside the organisation so that we can do this. (Our ministry position might be, of course, that the options on a particular issue are still open, pending further information.) One of the fruits of this peer interaction has been a formal section of our site headed ‘Arguments Not To Use ’, written by CMI’s Dr Jonathan Sarfati.
