Committed to Creation in Our Science Materials
At BJU Press, we shape our science curriculum with the belief that the Bible has answers to life’s most important questions, starting in Genesis 1:1. We can understand life properly only by viewing it through the three key parts of the Bible’s story: Creation, Fall, and Redemption. We can truly understand and value science for the right reasons only through a biblical worldview.
This is God’s world.
Our world displays God’s creativity and character. How the world began changes our entire worldview of science. Throughout our elementary, middle, and high school curricula, we reinforce the teaching of a literal, six-day creation of a young earth. Each textbook begins at Creation to keep students focused on a biblical worldview, which shows us that we have much to learn about our Creator through His creation. We also learn how Earth has changed during its history as a result of man’s sin.
Science is a tool for dominion.
Genesis 1:26–28 give us another reason for the study of science. In the beginning, we were called to exercise dominion over our world. As we study God’s creation through science, we learn how to properly care for and manage the environment. So our curriculum develops student scientists who think critically about the problems our world faces, analyze them from a biblical worldview, and develop realistic and sustainable solutions.
Science serves others.
As image bearers of God, we must use what we learn through science to help serve our fellow humans. Students draw on experiences with labs, case studies, and ethical issues in science to apply what they’ve learned to serve others.
