Apologetics Conference – The relevance of Genesis with Tim Chaffey

Genesis, the first book of the Bible, is the foundation of all Christian doctrine. In it, we learn about the triune God,  the origin of all matter, the nature of man, why suffering and death exists, and the reason Jesus came to sacrifice His life for us. Genesis also contains accounts of the creation, the Global Flood, and the Tower of Babel – accounts that many Christians don’t see the importance of taking literally.  REGISTER HERE

​But if Genesis is not true, how can we trust the rest of the Bible?  Join us as Tim Chaffey of Answers in Genesis gives compelling arguments for the first 11 chapters of the Bible and their importance to our modern world.

Tim Chaffey is the founder and director of Midwest Apologetics, a ministry dedicated to defending the word of God from the beginning to the end. Tim holds a M.Div. in Apologetics and Theology and a Th.M. in Church History and Theology from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author of the books God and Cancer, Old-Earth Creationism on Trial, and In Defense of Easter. Tim is also content manager for Answers in Genesis’s Ark Encounter.
