Northwest Creation Network
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
The Northwest Creation Network (NWCN) is a Christian ministry specialized in educational outreach in creation science apologetics. Their mission is "to strengthen faith against the false teachings of naturalism and encourage the Church to trust in the Bible as authoritative on early Earth history".
NWCN missionary service began in 1995 as developers of the NWCN website, which features a number of useful creationist resource directories, the CreationWiki: Encyclopedia of Creation Science, as well as a large collection of free PowerPoint files and downloadable videos.
The NWCN has grown to serve as a hub of creationist activity in the Northwest USA where they organize a monthly Apologetics Symposium, and an annual conference, along with periodic seminars and classes that are offered at Christian schools, Churches, Christian teacher's conventions and regional creationist groups. See about the NWCN.
Northwest Creation Network
Newly beginning March 2014, the NW Creation Network organizes an educational Apologetics Symposium at Cedar Park Church, Bothell WA. The programs will occur on a monthly basis on Thursday evening, and will feature presentations by speakers, scientists, and authors who are dedicated to defending the Bible.
The events are free and open to the public and suitable for ages 11 and up. Please help us spread the word of these important new educational programs by forwarding this to homeschool groups, teachers, pastors, and others concerned about the defense of faith in an environment of competing worldviews. For information on upcoming programs see website.

Since 2004 the NWCN has organized the Seattle Creation Conference. The conference provides an annual venue for educational seminars that support Biblical worldview, and features four speakers (scientists and apologists) that are dedicated to glorifying God through scientific studies of His creation. It is a two day event that generally occurs once a year on a Friday night and all day Saturday. The most recent conference took place Friday night and Saturday May 31 - June 1, 2013. See Conference Website
- Main article: About CreationWiki
In 2004, the NWCN started the CreationWiki, using the same software as Wikipedia to produce an "encyclopedia of creation apologetics". It was originally set up as a subdomain on the nwcreation.net website until it was later decided that the CreationWiki should be provided a dedicated server. Like most wikis, the Creation Wiki is designed to be a collaborative effort and virtually every page of the archive can be edited by our registered users. The articles on the Creation Wiki are written specifically from the "creationist point of view" (CPOV), which holds that the universe and life on Earth were created by God.
Creation Science Store
Please consider selecting the NWCN's Creation Science Store as your first choice for creationist books, videos, curriculum, and audio CDs. The NWCN offers more than 300 titles that range from basic introductions to Biblical apologetics, to those suitable for extensive research projects in creation science.
All proceeds from sales at the NWCN webstore are used to support the CreationWiki and other creation outreach missions.
