Northwest Creation Network
The Northwest Creation Network (NWCN) is a Christian ministry conducting educational outreach in the areas of creation science and Biblical apologetics. Its mission is "to strengthen faith against the false teachings of naturalism and encourage the Church to trust in the Bible as authoritative on early Earth history".
NWCN missionary service began in 1995 with development of the NWCN website, which features a number of useful creationist resource directories, and a large collection of free downloadable multimedia files including PowerPoint presentations, videos, and audios. This site also launched the CreationWiki.
The NWCN has grown to serve as a hub of creationist activity in the Northwest USA, organizing a monthly Apologetics Symposium and an annual Seattle Creation Conference, along with seminars and classes that are offered at Christian schools, churches, Christian teachers' conventions and creationist group meetings throughout the region. As of 2014 the NWCN began partnering with Cedar Park Church in Bothell WA to develop an Apologetics Ministry that includes both Sunday school classes, monthly programs, in addition to an annual conference. See about the NWCN for more information.
In March 2014, the NW Creation Network began organizing an educational Apologetics Symposium at Cedar Park Church, Bothell, WA. The programs occur on a monthly basis on Thursday evenings, and feature presentations by speakers, scientists, and authors who are dedicated to defending the Bible.
The events are free, open to the public, and suitable for ages 11 and up. Please help us spread the word of these important new educational programs by forwarding this to homeschool groups, teachers, pastors, and others concerned about the defense of faith in an environment of competing worldviews. For information on upcoming programs see website.
Seattle Creation Conference
- Main article: Seattle Creation Conference
Since 2004, the NWCN has organized the Seattle Creation Conference. The conference provides an annual venue for educational seminars that support Biblical worldview, featuring four speakers (scientists and apologists) that are dedicated to glorifying God through scientific studies of His creation. The two day event generally occurs once a year on a Friday night and all day Saturday. The most recent conference took place Friday night and Saturday May 31 - June 1, 2013. See the Conference Website.
- Main article: About CreationWiki
In 2004, the NWCN started the CreationWiki, using the same software as Wikipedia to produce an "encyclopedia of creation apologetics". Like most wikis, the Creation Wiki is designed to be a collaborative effort and virtually every page of the archive can be edited by any registered user. The articles on the CreationWiki are written specifically from the "creationist point of view" (CPOV), which holds that the universe and life on Earth were created by God.
