Our Statement of Faith
Section 1: Priorities of the Christian Faith
o The scientific aspects of creation are important but are secondary in importance to the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ as Sovereign, Creator, Redeemer, and Judge.
o The doctrines of Creator and Creation cannot ultimately be divorced from the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Section 4: General Statements
The following are held by the Board of Directors and Staff of The International Association for Creation to be either consistent with Scripture or implied by Scripture:
Code of Professional Ethics
Understanding the necessity of community outreach and educational opportunities for youth and adults alike, and the desire of the International Association for Creation to "proclaim Christ through His creation around the globe" the IAC recognizes the need to " expand awareness, understanding, and belief in the historical authenticity of Genesis, and ultimately the God of creation, by creating dynamic opportunities for creation science museums and ministries around the world," the IAC also recognizes that the general public looks to us to bring conformity to ethical behavior into our business operations,
management, financial, and relational responsibilities.
Recognizing the Bible as our standard by which we must evaluate our daily lives, our service in ministry, and all of our actions both seen and unseen. Subject to the Corporate Purpose contained within the Bylaws of the IAC, we have adopted the following Code of Ethics for our Board, our personnel, and our members to be held to:
1. I shall conduct my personal life, corporate ministry, and business affairs that will uphold the name of the Lord, not bringing reproach to His name, the IAC, or its members. I will ensure that my speech and actions bring glory and pleasure to the Lord and encourage others to do the same.
2. I will speak the truth in love and honesty at all times.
3. I will respect the Lord and others by recognizing what the Lord is doing through individuals and organizations while not partaking in undue criticism of them.
4. I will not use my ministry to speak falsely against anyone.
5. When I believe a fellow member has sinned against me or the Lord, or has violated the Code of Ethics, I will follow the Word of God in seeking reconciliation and repentance.
6. I will seek to honor my obligations to my local church, my family, my colleagues, my ministry partners, my vendors, my community, and the government. This includes both professional and ethical financial management in general, and when specific matters emerge, we will default to the guidelines provided by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (this does not require IAC members to be accredited by the ECFA, just defer to their guidelines).
7. Concerning matters of dispute, I pledge to submit my grievances to Christian arbitration as outlined in Holy Scripture for resolution rather than involving the courts of the land. However, I understand, that this shall not prohibit a member from expressing genuine concern to another brother in accordance to Matthew 18:15-17
8. I will refrain from any and all sexual misconduct or lifestyle, such as homosexuality or adultery, which are violations of Holy Scripture, or any promotion of the same.
9. IAC members that are 501(c)(3) organizations agree not to use their God-given platforms for political campaigning (e.g., since 1954, Congress imposed a requirement on all 501(c)(3) exempt organizations that they not engage in partisan political activity. Of course, this does not mean that we cannot speak to issues that have both Biblical and political significance, it simply means that we cannot specifically campaign).
