Creation Colleges: What You Need to Know

Are you eager to learn more about creation science and investigate the beautiful world around us? Are you interested in contributing to the growing field of creation model building?

You should consider pursuing higher education if you haven’t already! Being involved in the world of academia has incredible benefits. Through educational institutions, you get access to vast libraries and can easily acquire journals, articles, and more. You also have the opportunity to use scientific instrumentation and equipment in order to do research and test predictions. Your findings and writings would also be subject to peer review for accountability within the scientific community. This is of extreme importance. There are many “lone wolf” creationists who hold to particular pet theories—these, however, don’t have the chance to get tested and reviewed by accredited scientists and are often misleading. Peer review is undeniably critical in scientific research and model building.1,2,3,4 

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, getting involved in academia gives you connections and a community of like-minded people—believers who also have a passion for science and understanding how God made the world in the way that he did. The whole team here at New Creation thinks that this is one of the best aspects about finding a creation or creation-friendly institution to enroll in. 

That being said, this is a list of colleges that we would point you to in your journey. We have separated it by “creation-affirming” institutions and “creation-sympathetic” institutions. The former represents those whose leadership affirms a biblical, young-age creation. The latter represents those who may have faculty or staff who hold to this position, or at least are friendly and sympathetic to it. This list is by no means complete. This is just a starting point! If you know of creation/creation-friendly institutions that are not on this list, please feel free to contact us and let us know. We are only including those with accredited degrees in the STEM field. While we recognize that there are many more colleges and universities that affirm a young-earth, they do not offer degrees in the sciences.

Great article for youths to gets the credits and some help in thinking about creationism and meet people. In short to get smarter and get a job in it somehow.
I don’t agree peer review matters as its just saying OTHER PEOPLEB justify your research. they don’t. its on the evidencev and if you have smarter ideas you don’t others to agree. God was never peer reviewed. The bible does not need peer review.
A problem in schools is censorship and punishment and oppression aimed also at creationists. You must be smart to avoid the present wicked opposition powers.

@LibertyU is most definitely a Creation-Affirming Institution! Not sure how we didn’t make that list. We have a Center for Creation Studies, active creationist research, and a Creation Studies minor. Let’s talk, New Creation Blog! A little help, @sciencefaithfun?

I see you added Liberty University, a great school by the way; but to add to what Timothy said, what about Pensacola Christian College? They offer quite an array of STEM majors, they espouse young-earth creationism and require biblical origins classes to science majors.

Who besides God himself was involved in the creation of men? We cannot forget that GOD said: Genesis 1:v.26-CJB- “Let us make humankind in OUR image, in the likeness of ourselves…; verse 27 – So God created humankind in HIS OWN image; in the image of GOD He created him: male and female He created them.

King James Version-Genesis 1:v.26-Let us make MAN in OUR image, after OUR likeness… The Word of GOD is not revealing the creation of one MAN or a MAN, but to create MAN or HUMANKIND, many, many. 

Questions:
1 – Who was with GOD to share or to participate in the creation of MAN or humankind, in His own image, but in the likeness of them both or of themselves? 

2 – What or how was/is his image, the image of the Spirit of GOD? Yeah, an image that could be said to have been or is created in the image and likeness of God? The Scriptures have a crystal answer how was/is the image of GOD, in whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

  1. This has been answered since the Apostles. God is three in one, being Father, Son and Holy Spirit. That is why the passage is written as such. Hebrews did not see it that way until Christ came along. The affirmation of the trinity predated the Nicene Creed.
  2. The image seems mundane to make a big deal out of. We look like God but can’t ever be God. The image in the mirror is two dimensional while the original is three dimensional.

I appreciate being a part of this community and will be praying in regard to furthering my education and understanding of Creationism. As I have aged I find that I don’t learn so easily, and remembering is a struggle, but I know of a certainty that all that surrounds me, and everything I see from the smallest insect to the largest mammal reveal God’s amazing and intricate design and detail. Thank you for the great work you do in sharing His truth in this lost dying world!

I don’t need to try and figure out how God created the heavens and the earth and the fulness contained here in. The scriptures provides me enough information. It is written your ways are not My ways, your thoughts are not My thoughts, as heaven is above the earth, so am I above you. So why should I waste time trying to come up with my way in which I believe He created everything when I already know I can’t fathom Him or His ways. He is infinite, humans have a finite mind, so how can the finite mind figure out God? We are called to walk in faith, not by sight. I’m not saying you can not study His creation, but to try and say one knows how He did it is wrong for none of us know that.

Hi Stan!

While there are certainly aspects of the creation event and the Flood that we won’t know full answers to (as both were supernatural events), we believe it glorifies God to study what He has made. Since God created and often uses physical laws and processes, and since he has created us with curiosity and intelligence which reflect His image, we can glorify God in studying what has happened in earth history. Your point still stands–His ways are higher than ours, and His thoughts are above ours. As long as we are approaching these things in humility and with the goal to bring Him honor, it can be a very worthwhile cause.

Thanks for your thoughts!
Noel

I am surprised that there are no Catholic Universities listed here. I know that many now teach Theistic Evolution which is a fallacy due to liberal theologians, planted by the Communist Party. For more information on what the Catholic Church REALLY believes, please see FoundationsRestored.com. Most Catholics, like myself, were taught Creation in the Catholic Schools and in Cathecism. Catholic universities should be at least sympathetic to Creation, since the original Bible actually came from the Catholic Church and remained as the ONLY Bible for 1500 years, translated by St. Jerome into Latin from the Greek Septuigint, which Jesus and the Apostles read. In fact the Bible was put together at a Catholic Council by the Church Fathers in 390 AD. The 7 books that Luther took out were books Jesus and His disciples read, which were later discovered in the Dead Sea Scrolls. In the NIV Bible, John 10:22 states that it was the feast of Dedication (footnotes: that is Hanukkah), which He celebrated, as do the Jews celebrate to this day. Where do we find the story of Hanukkah? In the Book of Maccabees!
P.S. We used to live in Lynchburg, VA where I visited Liberty University. I was very impressed by the Creation Science Museum.

Hi Mary!
Thanks for your comment. Do you have any particular Catholic universities in mind? This list is a growing list based off of what we know, and we are open to looking into other accredited universities that offer STEM degrees.
Thanks!

Hi, Mary Theresa,: the Bible did not “originate” in 390 AD. It originated as the written word, from prophets and apostles, plus figures like Moses or Luke, who also did God’s work of giving us His inspired word. It originated as the truth in the heart of God.

This was a phenomenal idea! There was certainly no such list when I went to college 25+ years ago, but now with my children at that age and interested in science, this article will be helpful. Thank you for the effort in putting this list together.

This is a great resource – so that young people can get plugged into the right programs to contribute to the advancement of better scientific models!! Thanks for this article!

Also, I work with Alpha Omega Institute – a Creation Science Teaching ministry in Grand Junction, CO. We have developed a 1-year Training Adventure that is a specialized program designed to fortify students with a creation-based Biblical worldview with an emphasis on applied apologetics and personal discipleship. This Adventure includes field trips to the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Mt St Helens!

The school is quite strong in a lot of areas, but as with many evangelical schools boasting a strong scriptural genesis, sadly, a caveat emptor is now warranted. One of the LU physics profs there, for example, has been an impenitent acolyte for progressive creationism.

I’m surprised that you haven’t included Andrews University, Southwestern Adventist University and other Seventh-Day Adventist Colleges in your listing of places that teach and support a Young Earth world view. You must be aware of Dr. Art Chadwick’s work! He is a professor at Southwestern.
