Header to Reclaim Wisdom

What is the nature and value of humanity?

How is the answer shaped by our view of origins?

Why are our beliefs essential to the answer?

2019 marks the 500th anniversary of da Vinci's death and a half millennium impact of Renaissance thinking. By adopting Protagoras' statement “Man is the measure of all things,” there is a fundamental shift in where one finds knowledge and wisdom. Repercussions of this shift extend back to one's view of creation/origins. Though often viewed as a theological or science discussion, the implications affect all aspects of human endeavor.

Join us on July 20th as we address these issues from a perspective faithful to a seven-day creation and a literal Adam and Eve. Our goal is to equip individuals to recognize the influences of competing worldviews and anchor those influences to one's view of origins (reality). As a result, we hope individuals will have a more reasoned, confident and compassionate response to the world around them (I Peter 3:15).
