Kanawha Creation Science Group

About Us


In the fall of 1995, two things happened that began the formation of the Kanawha Creation Science Group. A daughter came home with questions about the evolutionism being crammed down her throat and Dr. Bert Thompson was speaking several times at a nearby church. Karl Priest went out on a cold drizzling night to hear Dr. Thompson. God laid it upon Karl's heart to begin a local creation science ministry although he had never heard of such a thing. Karl passed out flyers and paid for a radio spot on local Christian radio and reserved a room in the South Charleston library for meetings. There Karl sat alone reading his Bible and praying for several weeks. Just as Karl was beginning to believe his efforts were useless, Bobby O'Connor called and then met with Karl. Dr. John Roller also met with the two men and then a retired science teacher, Jo Bricker, joined the group, thus forming the nucleus of the Kanawha Creation Science Group. The KCSG believes the Bible from The Very First Word and strives to equip others with the materials and information needed to fight against the teachings of evolution. There is a 'to-do' list of about two dozen ideas waiting on the Lord's direction and provision. Contact our speakers and schedule them for your next church or youth service.

The Gospel

The KCSG seeks to give glory and honor to God as the Creator and present the truth of the Biblical record of the origin and history of the world. As what Adam did (in Genesis) brought death, what Jesus did (in John) brought life. The KCSG encourages everyone to read the following verses and choose life through Christ — Romans 3:23, 5:8, 6:23, and 10:9-11.
Check out our speakers page for important information on speakers and creation. Our speakers are available to present their programs to church, youth or community groups. Please contact them for more information.

Statement of Beliefs
  1. The universe and everything in it was created by God rather than by spontaneous generation and development from one kind into another.
  2. All creation was accomplished in six consecutive literal days -- not over millions of years and the earth is thousands (not millions) of years old.
  3. A world-wide, historical flood, caused by God, occurred at the time of Noah.
  4. The Bible is the inerrant, revealed Word of God to man and is accurate in all areas including geographical, numerical and scientific.
  5. Salvation, made necessary by the fall of Adam, comes only through Christ.
