Has there ever been a more challenging time to live as a young person?
We live in a world of relative truth, amongst fake news, social media, multiple cultures and worldview.
In this landscape how can we be certain of what we believe?
Does God really exist?
Did Jesus Really Die & Rise Again?
You meet skeptics every day.
They ask questions like: Are your science teachers wrong?
Did God create the universe?
Is the Big Bang theory true?
So how can we come to a logical conclusion?
Let's look at the claims and evidence together as we look at:
1. A Case for a Creator
2. A Case for Christ
3. Trustworthiness of Scripture
4. A Case for Faith
And answer your burning questions as you look at the world and faith.
case for a creator
Some people claim we live in a technological culture where science trumps all forms of knowledge and therefore science only achieves truth.
In this session we will look at science and whether it is fully reliable as absolute truth and whether it is possible to believe in science and also believe in God?
Can Science aid us in seeing the origins of life, intelligent design and a Creator God?

In this session we will continue our search for the truth about the existence of a Creator through the examination of evidence that challenges materialistic theories of life’s origin.
We will focus on the incredible geological discoveries of the Cambrian fossil record and Stanley Miller’s famous 1953 attempt to generate the components necessary for life…in a test tube to see whether some of the biggest theories of science for evolution and the tree of life are robust or simply negative evidence

Many people's rejection of God are based on the belief that the universe is nothing more than the product of random processes and chemical evolution. On our search for truth we will look at the work of astronomer Edwin Hubble and see some of the greatest discoveries in the history of science.
Is this simply chance of can we begin to the see the signs of an intelligent designer?

Scientists of all worldviews agree that the physical constants of our universe and the conditions of the early universe are exquisitely fine-tuned for life.
Fine-tuning refers to the surprising precision of nature’s physical constants and the early conditions of the universe. To explain how a habitable planet like Earth could even exist, these fundamental constants have to be set to just the right values (like tuning a dial to find just the right radio station).
When viewed through the eyes of faith, we see a personal God crafting an abundant, complex universe that includes our life-giving home, the Earth.

In our further investigation we will turn to the microscopic universe of the living cell and the science of biochemistry.
Here we will encounter new challenges to Darwinian evolution and new evidence for intelligent design – particularly in the molecular machines that drive the vital functions of life.

In the final leg of our investigation, we will explore new discoveries in the field of genetic information. Locked within the DNA molecule is the blueprint for every cell in a living organism. This “language of life” is, perhaps, the most compelling single piece of evidence in the scientific case for a Creator.
