Answers in Genesis (AiG)
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics (i.e., Christianity-defending) ministry, dedicated to enabling Christians to defend their faith and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus particularly on providing answers to questions surrounding the book of Genesis, as it is the most-attacked book of the Bible. We also desire to train others to develop a biblical worldview, and seek to expose the bankruptcy of evolutionary ideas, and its bedfellow, a "millions of years old" earth (and even older universe).
AiG teaches that "facts" don't speak for themselves, but must be interpreted. That is, there aren't separate sets of "evidences" for evolution and creation--we all deal with the same evidence (we all live on the same earth, have the same fossils, observe the same animals, etc.). The difference lies in how we interpret what we study. The Bible--the "history book of the universe"--provides a reliable, eye-witness account of the beginning of all things, and can be trusted to tell the truth in all areas it touches on. Therefore, we are able to use it to help us make sense of this present world. When properly understood, the "evidence" confirms the biblical account.

Creation Minstries International (CMI)
Creation Ministries International is a group of non-profit ministries in several countries. Though each is a legally and financially autonomous body, we have formally unified our efforts as a federation of ministries under the banner 'CMI-Worldwide' that helps to ensure unity, harmony, and efficiency of outreach.
Our role is to support the church in proclaiming the truth of the Bible and thus its gospel message. We provide real-world answers to the most-asked questions in the vital area of creation/evolution, where the Bible is most under attack today--Genesis.
We are apolitical and non-denominational (as an organisation, not as individuals within it). We try to confine ourselves to matters as defined broadly by our Statement of Faith, and try to not get involved as a ministry in other controversies or issues within Christendom, no matter how important we, as individuals, might regard these.

Institute for Creation Research
Founded by Dr. Henry Morris in 1970, the Institute for Creation Research is a creation apologetics ministry that exists to conduct scientific research within the realms of origins and earth history, and then to educate the public through graduate and professional training programs, through conferences and seminars, and through books, magazines, and media. ICR was established for three main purposes:
Research. ICR engages in laboratory, field, theoretical, and library research on projects that seek to understand the science of origins and earth history. Our scientists have conducted multi-year research projects at key locations such as Grand Canyon, Mount St. Helens, Yosemite Valley, the Santa Cruz River Valley in Argentina, and elsewhere.
Education. ICR currently operates the California-based ICR Graduate School, established in 1981 to offer the Master of Science degree; the School of Biblical Apologetics on its Dallas campus, offering the Master in Christian Education; and the Creationist Worldview online study program. Faculty members also contribute to ICR’s Science Education Essentials curriculum for Christian K-12 teachers.
Communication. ICR produces books, films, periodicals, and other media to communicate the evidence related to biblical origins and earth history. ICR’s central publication is Acts & Facts, a full-color monthly magazine with a readership of over 200,000, providing articles relevant to science, apologetics, education, and worldview issues. ICR also publishes the daily devotional Days of Praise with over 300,000 readers worldwide. Three syndicated radio programs are produced by ICR and can be heard on some 1,500 outlets around the world.

Located in Glendive, Montana the mission of the Foundation Advancing Creation Truth is to glorify God as Creator and Sustainer, emphasize man's accountability to Him, and challenge the individual to critically evaluate the humanistic concept of evolution.
Currently this is achieved through the fossil digs at Glendive where the public is invited to participate in the fossil excavation of dinosaur bones done in the context of the flood of Noah's day. In addition, in 2009 FACT opened the Glendive Dinosaur & Fossil Museum where the Truth of God's Word is presented in one of the largest dinosaur and fossil museums in the United States which uses the latest in dinosaur and fossil exhibits, paleontological, geological, archeological, and scientific discoveries.
