CMI celebrates 10 years of ministry in South Africa!

“What is needed before [CMI] would consider opening a new work in a foreign country?” This inquiry, articulated in an email from South Africa, set into motion a number of things, including an initial visit to CMI-Australia which eventually led to the founding of a fully functional office in Cape Town in June 2002.

In response to the launch of the ministry, Susan K wrote, “What wonderful news! [CMI] opening doors in the Cape. The ministry has had a special place in my heart and I have so many ‘if only’ hopes and dreams that I haven't even begun to pray about because the prospect of a local office seemed too far off in the distant future.”

Like Susan, most of you are aware of CMI’s goal to support the Church in fulfilling the great commission—and to help bring reformation by restoring the foundations of the Christian faith contained in the book of Genesis. In order to do this effectively, the ministry ‘links’ with believers through the Creation magazine, books, DVDs, newsletters and INFObytes, and a dynamically changing website with more than 8,500 fully-searchable free articles. Together with these quality resources, the 2009 year-of-Darwin documentary The Voyage That Shook the World as well as the recently launched Question Evolution! campaign are finely-honed tools in the ongoing battle against the evolutionary indoctrination so prevalent in society today.

Over the years a growing number of concerned South Africans have recognised ‘where the battle is at’ in the country. Over time many of them became part of the ‘team’ by partnering with the ministry through prayer and practical support. In doing so, they were really putting ‘feet’ to the message by helping us (and themselves) to teach others to defend their faith (1 Peter 3:15) and proclaim the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

On the road again—from town to town, and church to church!

A vital part of the ministry is the presentation of talks in Christian churches. These are essentially motivational and geared towards ‘arming and equipping’ believers to ‘uphold the authority and accuracy of the Bible from the very first verse.’ We thank the Lord that since the inception of CMI-SA, close to 100,000 people were reached with the Genesis/Gospel message at more than 1,000 events during 57 ministry tours conducted across the country. Nine international CMI speakers were hosted (some more than once) during twelve of those tours.

It is a great blessing and joy to receive feedback from folk about how their lives (and that of family and friends) have been impacted by a message in a local church, Bible seminary, or school.

July S. told us how her husband has been battling with creation/evolution since she committed her life to Christ. She prayed for him for many years but “because of unanswered questions about this issue he has felt that he cannot make a commitment to accept Jesus into his life.” They attended a CMI presentation at a church and “because of the lecture the chains have been broken, my husband is … defending the Bible and he is now being gently ushered into The Kingdom … I know that it is only a matter of time until one more lost sheep joins the rest of the flock.’” She gave God the glory for “using one of His humble servants in getting the facts of the Bible across as something other than just fairytales.”

Students at a local theological college felt that “the angle at which the message was presented was refreshing. The presentation did not counteract science as a field, but established a biblical base as a reference.”

And finally, Neal B. thanked us for the talk at their school. “The kids and staff members really enjoyed it and it indeed generated much thought. I sincerely hope that many students were reached and hopefully many more will come to know our wonderful Heavenly Father!”

These are but a small sample of excerpts from numerous testimonies received over the years. Going into the second decade of ministry, we trust that, by His grace, CMI here and abroad will continue to grow from strength to strength, reaching many more people with a vitally important message for our time—the relevance of Genesis to the Gospel.

Finally, if you’ve never had CMI ministry at your church, Bible seminary or school, why not consider hosting an event? Contact us here or phone 021 975 8109. Also, CMI relies on the gifts of God’s people to sustain this vital outreach. If not yet involved, we encourage you to consider a donation. Regular or once off, small or large—it will help us to plan reliably and more long term.

Thank you so much for joining hands with us in this ongoing battle for the hearts and minds of people.

Happy birthday CMI-SA!

Artistic Ape Anecdotes

Dr Batten deals with the claimed apeman fossils in the evolutionary tree promoted by the Smithsonian and shows how the stories do not add up. The fossil patterns fit a post-Flood dispersal of apes and a somewhat later post-Babel dispersal of humans. Shows how detailed illustrations have been imaginatively created from fragmentary fossils!

From Atheist to Creationist

Many Christians face a devastating phenomenon when their kids jettison their faith and walk out of the church, despite years of exposure to a Christian culture. Why? The good news is, the answers are not difficult if one has the courage to recognize the problem. Drawing insight as a former atheist, Calvin delivers an eye opening message of encouragement, giving clear directions on overcoming one of the biggest barriers to faith in Christ.

Distant Starlight - A Forum

Creationist solutions to the “light-travel problem”

For the first time, two of the world’s leading creationist cosmologists share the same stage and discuss each other’s models that seek to explain how distant starlight, allegedly millions of light years away, could reach the earth within a 6,000 year-old Creation. The answers appeal to understandable, known science that is also revealing that the secular cosmological models of the bigbang is increasingly becoming untenable. It’s an exciting time for creationist cosmology.

Evolution’s Fatal Fruit

Darwin gave the world an explanation of life that helped to fuel the ovens at Auschwitz. Tom DeRosa shows the grim applications of evolutionary theory to human society applied by Hitler’s belief that he was helping the process along. These evolutionary ideas were also taken up by the American eugenics movement, which forcibly sterilized thousands. It’s shocking and it’s being advocated again today. You will never see evolution as ‘just a harmless theory’ again.

Dynamic Changes in Living Things

People are told: “Evolution is happening all around us!” This superb presentation shows clearly that the examples used are actually the opposite of what would support evolution. Both natural selection and mutation fit beautifully within a biblical framework and are powerful tools to defend Genesis.

The Dating Game

Crucial to any worldview, the age of the earth has been a wedge deeply splitting Christianity. The rocks and fossils are a story interpreted by a person’s predetermined worldview. Let’s have a look together at some geological features used to ‘read time’ and hear how they whisper “The earth is young!”—just as the Bible would indicate.

Creation Evangelism

Why does evangelism seem so difficult today? Actually, by applying proven soul-winning methods as found in the Scriptures, Christians can effectively ‘engage the culture’—whether in the evolutionized West or the remotest jungles of Papua New Guinea. Find out how!

How Evolution Hurts Science

As a leading research professor, John Sanford has seen the harmful effects of how a faulty worldview inhibits good science, especially in the revealing area of alleged “junk DNA”. He also shows how fallacious arguments are used to discriminate against anyone who dares to stand against the prevailing worldview of evolution and millions-of–years, and how we can make a stand against it.

Dinosaurs & the Bible

Has anyone ever seen a real live dinosaur? Do dinosaurs prove that the Bible is wrong? What happened to the dinosaurs? A brilliant illustrated presentation that lets you find out the answers to the most-asked questions about dinosaurs, and why everyone should know about them.

Frankenstein Foods & Fetuses

Is the genetic modification (GM) of our foods ethical, safe, wise, biblical? What about cloning and stem cells? How have researchers been influenced by evolution? In this ultratopical presentation, plant physiologist Don Batten gives us plenty to chew on as he examines these hot topics.

Rafting in the Grand Canyon

Enjoy this ‘virtual raft tour’ through Grand Canyon stopping along the river to explore evidence in the rocks for the rapid formation of the canyon. This image rich presentation shows the beauty of the Canyon while explaining, in easy-to-understand terms how the Canyon’s geology supports biblical history and not the millions of years evolutionary history.

Starlight, Time and the New Physics

If the universe is only six thousand years old as understood from a straightforward reading of Genesis, and the universe is tens of billions of light-years in expanse, then how do we see light from distant galaxies? From firm physical theory, Dr Hartnett outlines a solution to this seemingly intractable problem that is often used to question the integrity of the Bible.

Creation Not Confusion

In these fast-paced and informative presentations, Gary Bates demonstrates with stunning clarity how beliefs about where we came from determine our overall worldview, our behavior, and where we think we go when we die—and why the church should embrace this issue if it is to be the force it once was when engaging the culture.

Darwin: The Voyage that Shook the World

2009 marked the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his book, ‘Origin of Species’. The Voyage that Shook the World retraces Darwin’s journey, exploring the places and discoveries crucial to the formulation of his Theory of Evolution.




Refuting Compromise
(the first edition)

RRP R120
Birthday Special R50

With his usual brilliant clarity, Jonathan Sarfati has produced a comprehensive and resounding refutation of the position of 'progressive creationist' Hugh Ross, whose views are causing massive confusion about science and the Bible. The most powerful and scientific defence of a straightforward view of Genesis creation ever written.

Answers to the Four Big Questions

Birthday Special R5

The four most-asked questions have been taken from the popular Answers Book and made into an attractive, oversized booklet (passed out at the Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 Olympics). Answers the questions: Does God exist? Who was Cain’s wife? How did all the races get here? and Does evolution explain our existence?
