Our network of theologians, scientists, economists, and other scholars and leaders work together to promote, primarily through education, three things simultaneously:
- Biblical earth stewardship, or “godly dominion”—men and women working together to enhance the fruitfulness, beauty, and safety of the earth to the glory of God and the benefit of our neighbors;
- economic development for the world’s poor; and
- the proclamation and defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ,
all in a world permeated by an environmental movement whose worldview, theology, and ethics are overwhelmingly anti-Christian, whose science and economics are often poorly done, whose policies therefore often do little good for natural ecosystems but much harm to the world’s poor, and whose religious teachings undermine the fundamental Christian doctrines of God, creation, humanity, sin, and salvation.
We conduct research; write papers and articles on current issues related to the environment, economic development, and the Christian faith as it relates to those issues; provide speakers for churches, colleges, schools, and conferences; provide expert testimony on pending legislation and regulation for governing bodies; advise and consult with Christian leaders from around the world; and produce books and videos to educate the public.
