The Short Story

In the spring of 2014, with the help of 567 families from around the world, a “Save Jonathan Park” campaign was launched by Pat Roy, the creator of Jonathan Park and two long-term friends and colleagues that were instrumental in the success of Jonathan Park over the past 14 years.

On March 11, 2014, CreationWorks officially became the new home for the Jonathan Park Audio Adventure series. Thanks to God and to those who prayed for and contributed to this important work, the truth of creation and the incredible science that aligns with Scripture now continues to be told through the exciting adventures of Jonathan Park and the Creation Response Team.

What We Believe

Biblical Stances:

1. God – in three persons – is the Creator of all things.

2. God created the entire universe “ex-nihilo” (out of nothing) in 6 literal days.

3. That the plain reading of Genesis constitutes a historically and factually accurate account of creation.

4. We oppose evolutionary theory which portrays man as a product of meaningless random chance accidents. Humans were made in God’s image, which separates us from the animals.

5. Man’s rebellion against God has resulted in a sin-cursed world which leads to death, pain, and suffering – and eternal separation from the Creator.

6. Jesus Christ died on the cross to restore mankind back to fellowship with the Father. Only Christ’s work on the cross can redeem man from the curse of sin pronounced by God. According to Romans, the penalty for sin is death. Whoever accepts Christ’s gift of redemption will receive salvation from eternal spiritual death (hell).

7. The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, Word of God.

8. The Bible is accurate in all its historical and scientific references.


Scientific Stances:

1. The eternal God created the entire universe out of nothing.

2. God created the original “kinds” of animals separate and fully formed. While there is great scientific evidence of variation and adaptation, there is no scientific evidence of evolution from one kind of animal into another.

3. Humans were created fully formed, with a fully developed intelligence and spiritual capacity. They did not evolve from “lower” ancestors”.

4. Scientific evidence (geological and physical processes) shows the earth to be much younger than the long ages required by the theory of evolution.

5. God created an orderly universe which follows the known laws of science. The Creator has (as evidenced through history) the ability to temporarily suspend the laws of nature to perform miracles consistent with His nature.

6. The curse of man’s rebellion can be seen in science as evidenced by the deleterious (negative) effects of the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics.

7. Noah’s Flood was global in nature – covering every mountain up to 15 cubits. This cataclysmic flood has left evidence around the globe in geologic formations, fossil record, and other physical indicators.

8. God’s Word and nature have the same author. Ultimately nature and the Bible are in complete harmony. Any apparent conflicts between the two are the result of man’s finite understanding. True scientific inquiry will filter man’s observations through the Bible. We do not use man’s fallible theories to interpret the infallible Word of God.
