Creation Ministries International

Creation Ministries Intl

CMI is one of the World’s largest Creation ministries with seven offices worldwide. We also produce Creation Magazine which has been in circulation for 35 years. CMI serves to help people understand that the first few chapters of Genesis contain the foundation for many aspects of the Christian faith. For example, Genesis provides the basis for a Biblical understanding of life, death, sin, punishment, atonement, redemption and marriage. We also help people understand that there is no scientific conflict with a literal interpretation of Genesis, and that modern evolutionary thinking is not truly derived from scientific evidence.
