Upcoming Events

Why Christianity is Good for Science, Dr. Ted Davis.

October 29th, 2021. Christ Community Church, 7:00pm.

How do we understand the relationship between Christianity and science? Warfare? Partnership? Dr. Ted Davis suggests the Christian faith fill in the picture of the world coming from the sciences. Christianity, according to Dr. Davis, can help us achieve a deeper understanding of the world and how we should  understand it. Biblical faith offers both a powerful motive for investigating nature and a foundation for the very possibility of scientific knowledge.

Dr. Ted Davis

Dr. Ted Davis is the Professor of the History of Science at Messiah University. He received his B.S. Physics from Drexel University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in History & Philosophy of Science from Indiana University. He has studied and written extensively regarding the junction of faith and science, especially during the period of the Scientific Revolution, including biweekly columns for the BioLogos Forum.

About

Our vision is to facilitate critical dialogue about faith at the university and in the church.

Trinity Fellowship is a cross-ministry resource for the IU community bridging multiple Christian traditions.

We invite the IU community to:

  • Bring together faith and learning.
  • Discover the intellectual resources of the Christian faith and equip students for contemporary life.

We desire to:

  • Engage in honest inquiry with academic integrity and discuss difficult questions while remaining humble in our conclusions.
  • Promote theological curiosity and contribute to the common good.
  • Avoid activities that divide us from the very campus culture we seek to serve.
  • Create an environment that affirms Christian truth claims and is generous to those who differ from us.
