Recognizing that faith and science serve the pursuit of truth

Following Jesus involves pursuing truth in all its forms, including science and intellect. There is no inherent conflict between Scripture and science, as the ancient texts of Christian faith were never intended to be read through the lens of science. Rather, they move us to seek wisdom, knowledge and truth wherever they may be found. The journey of faith is a collaboration between the head and the heart, which means that genuine faith involves doubt. Embracing doubt allows followers of Jesus to foster a faith that is authentic, honest and deeply true.
