About Us

About

The mission of Baptist Creation Care Initiative is to offer a distinctly Baptist voice of faith, enriched by science and action, and empowered by biblical insight and a love of creation. We strive to be a venue where Baptists of many different traditions can discuss the place of both the Bible and science in our shared understanding of God's wonderful creation. Although talking is important, we also hope to be a community where we can incite one another to take action, both great and small.
