About Creation Studies Institute

Our Executive Director & Founder, Tom DeRosa left the seminary and the church thinking he was throwing away his faith, but in reality, he had only found a new religion: evolution.

However, in 1978, he accepted Jesus Christ as Lord of his life. Soon after, he studied the area of Creation at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and has come to the conclusion that a lack of knowledge of the biblical account of creation is greatly responsible for many barriers that keep people from Christ.

His commitment to breaking down those barriers, and to fill believers with the knowledge that will allow them to do the same, is what led Tom to form Creation Studies Institute
in 1988.

How we are reaching the lost...
It's no secret that the lie of evolution has become a stumbling block for many on their path to salvation. CSI is called to remove this stumbling block by teaching the truth that God is our Creator, that we are made in His image, and that by Him and through Him, all things were made.
How we are teaching the found...

The number of Christian believers is growing exponentially and these new believers long to make a difference in our culture.  Many, if not all of them, have been indoctrinated with evolutionistic teaching and need to be retrained and taught the truth about our origins. One way to do this is through the development of a training course, which will include curriculum to train students of all ages in such a way that they, in turn, can train others.

CSI has developed a strategy to combat the dogmatic teaching of evolution in public schools by exposing the brainwashing, censorship, and deception that is taking place. Pamphlets and brochures will address the specific fallacies of evolution that appear in the science textbooks and on popular science web sites. These pamphlets can easily be duplicated and distributed.
