Brian Young, an internationally known speaker and author, was a teacher and principal for ten years before becoming director of Creation Instruction Association and the Semisaurus Mobile Creation Museum. He has now been speaking on the topic of creation and Biblical authority for 25 years, doing debates at Universities, going into prisons, and sharing at churches, schools and camps around the world. He uses the Bible as the foundation for science and education.
What We Believe: CIA teaches and confesses the inspiration, inerrancy and authority of the Word of God, not just for theology but for our scientific understandings and morals as well. Science does not interpret Scripture, rather Scripture interprets Scripture. Though we believe the doctrine of creation is important, it is secondary to the Gospel, however, we see the doctrine of creation as a foundation for the Gospel of Christ. We hold to a young earth just a few thousand years old, a global Flood of Noah, sin, death and disease through the curse in the Garden, but salvation through Jesus. We believe all of mankind have sinned, but the Holy Spirit enables the sinner to repent and believe upon Jesus, who was conceived by the virgin Mary, was placed on the cross to suffer and die, but rose physically from the dead to redeem those who repent and call upon Him. We believe in the trinity and salvation through Jesus Christ alone and by His grace alone.
