Abortion Based on Evolution

with Dr. Jerry Bergman

Documents why evolution was critical in the U. S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade ruling that a woman had a constitutional right to abortion, nullifying all existing laws prohibiting abortion. If the court were to rule on the same issue today, they would likely decide on a very different conclusion.

Dinosaur Mysteries ... Solved!

Creation: Impacting our Culture

Shane Cessna has been involved in the creation debate for many years and is now a speaker for CMI-US. He hopes to share with Christians that a belief in evolution and the Bible cannot be reconciled with one another. By discounting Genesis as literal history and accepting evolutionary beliefs, the gospel message is undermined and Christ is rendered unnecessary as Saviour and Redeemer of mankind.   More...

Aliens, UFOs & the Evolution Connection

with Gary Bates of Creation Ministries International

There is an ‘intergalactic’ battle over the history of life in the universe, a battle for the souls of human beings.

Gary Bates is the CEO of Creation Ministries International. As a researcher into contemporary cultural beliefs, he has also been in great demand worldwide due to the huge international success of his book Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection.

Map showing MCF locations

MCF South!

Would you be interested in meetings in the area south of Chicago, rather than having to drive to Carol Stream or Lindenhurst?

Over the years, a few people have said they would like to see MCF meetings closer to the south of Chicago, but so far, no one has had the time and energy to make it happen. But there is now an MCF member who is seeking to start "MCF-South"!

If you're interested in attending meetings at an "MCF South" location, please email mcfsouth@midwestcreationfellowship.org. Or call the Sivertsens' residence at 847-223-4730, and we'll get you in contact with the organizer. And if you could help in any way (such as bringing refreshments, chair set up, clean up, finding a place to meet, handing out flyers, making sure the A/V equipment works, etc.), please let us know!

THANKS!
