OUR HISTORY

The genesis of the Creation Evidence Expo was April 18, 2001, when Dr. Carl Baugh and Pastor Fredrick Boyd, Jr., met. The event was an annual home missions conference at the Bible Baptist Church in Salt Lake City, Utah which brought pastors and missionaries together with pastors preaching and encouraging, and missionaries sharing their needs.

 

During the conference, Pastor Boyd spoke afterward with Dr. Baugh. At that time Pastor Boyd was unaware that Dr. Baugh is one of the leading creationists and hosts a television show, “Creation in the 21st Century”, but the relationship between these men grew. On March 30, 2005, Pastor Boyd again preached at the conference referring to the text, 1 Peter 1:18-19, “We were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold . . . But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” He declared, “I say that all who are in Christ Jesus are ‘blood brothers and sisters’.” From that day, Dr. Baugh referred to Pastor Boyd as his “blood brother”. When he again said, “I know the Lord wants me to come to Indianapolis and work with you on creation,” Pastor Boyd responded, “I would love to work with you Dr. Baugh, but we don’t have the funds to make it happen.” Immediately, the Holy Spirit prompted Pastor Boyd: “You don’t, but I do.” Upon hearing that voice, Pastor Boyd submitted to the Lord‘s will, trusting Him to provide.

On Friday, April 1, 2005, the details were worked out for Dr. Carl Baugh to present at Indianapolis in September, 2005. To Pastor Boyd‘s surprise, the Lord brought together many people who were interested in the topic and/or knew Dr. Carl Baugh. The weekend was a tremendous time of fellowship, preaching, lecturing, and teaching on creation evidence. After this event, the Lord led the men to consider more events on creation evidence in Indianapolis. After much prayer, the Creation Evidence Crusade began in the year 2006, with the first event being held on September 23, 2006, at the Indiana Convention Center.

Approximately 2000 attendees came to the one day presentation, hearing the initial presenters: Dr. Carl Baugh, Dr. G. Thomas Sharp, Dr. Charles Jackson, Mr. Nick Lally, Mrs. RoseAnn Salanitri, and others. In 2007, the name was changed from the Creation Evidence Crusade to Creation Evidence Expo.

 

May God bless the readers and participants. We, as an organization, are intent on burying evolution.
