But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear. (1 Peter 3:15)
As you know, Answers in Genesis specializes in teaching God’s Word and presenting the gospel by using apologetics. AiG is equipping people
- to defend the Christian faith against the secular attacks of our day
- to challenge people concerning the truth of God’s Word and the gospel
- to teach people how to effectively communicate the gospel in an increasingly secularized and antagonistic anti-Christian culture.
As our Ark guests experience the world-class exhibits and Bible-affirming teaching on the huge 510-foot-long ship, they eventually arrive on the third deck. After touring Noah’s living quarters, they visit a theater (in the stern end) that continuously shows a top-quality new movie, As in the Days of Noah.
This film features a reporting team from a fictitious tabloid newspaper that visits our Ark, with actual footage of the Ark Encounter. The reporter and crew hear our good friend Ray Comfort (of Living Waters) clearly present the gospel, beginning in Genesis. The film is very moving and this powerful presentation of the gospel is produced in a very cutting-edge way.
Guests then walk through a number of exceptionally well-designed teaching exhibits, including one by the Museum of the Bible (which is opening the world’s largest Bible museum this November in Washington, DC). Its genuine artifacts give real-life examples of how the Bible has impacted cultures and changed the hearts of countless multitudes around the world.
Ark visitors then come to the final and newest exhibit in the entire Ark: a 2,500-square-foot display called Why the Bible Is True. Arranged like a stunning graphic novel, it immerses guests in the pages of a life-size novel as an illustrated drama takes place between three college students. One is a Christian; the other two are trying to figure out what life is all about.
The three students want to understand why, if there really is a God of love, there is death and suffering in the world. A car accident brings these students face to face with that life-and-death question. The story segues to amazing graphics on the doors mentioned in Scripture, and then a clear presentation of the gospel. After walking through this unique story, guests experience an apologetics section that helps them understand the Bible’s trustworthiness.
No one can leave the Ark without having been immersed in God’s Word and without having heard a few clear presentations of the gospel. In addition, Christians and non-Christians will identify with the struggle these college students wrestle over: “How can there be a loving God with all the death and suffering in the world?” This well-done exhibit gives the answer to one of the most-asked questions that millennials and others have.
We’ve never tried to hide the fact that at both the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter our purpose is to present the authority of God’s Word and boldly proclaim the gospel. AiG accomplishes this goal by offering our visitors immersive experiences as they walk through these world-class themed attractions.
I believe our new evangelistic movie and the stunning Why the Bible Is True exhibit will reach millions of souls with the gospel message.
Come experience these powerful apologetics-based evangelistic tools . . . and bring your family and friends, whether they are Christians or non-Christians! The Ark Encounter and Creation Museum have already been used by God to change many lives for eternity.
