Studying Science and Mathematics From a Distinctly Biblical Worldview

Precision and order were set throughout creation, and the responsibility was given to us to study, learn, and steward what He had made. The disciplines of science and mathematics uniquely allow you to fulfill this call, growing in knowledge of the world and handling your knowledge with faithful service to the Lord.
At Cedarville, your courses will be laid in this biblical groundwork; every classroom discussion, research project, and hands-on lab that you engage in will prepare you to be a professional who impacts your discipline with the grace and truth of Christ. Learn to exercise stewardship of your knowledge, and be equipped to care for the earth, for God's glory and the good of His image-bearers.
“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.”

“When with bold telescopes I survey the old and newly discovered stars and planets when with excellent microscopes I discern the unimitable subtility of nature's curious workmanship; and when, in a word, by the help of anatomical knives, and the light of chemical furnaces, I study the book of nature I find myself oftentimes reduced to exclaim with the Psalmist, How manifold are Thy works, O Lord! In wisdom hast Thou made them all!”

“To navigate a complex world, we as Christians need to remain rooted in the Word of God. The solution to the world's problems is transformed lives through the Gospel of Christ. However, stopping there and remaining naïve about how the physical world works leads to shallow and superficial solutions when attempting to engage society on environmental, biological, and technological issues. The faculty of the School of Science and Mathematics desire that our students are excellent in their discipline of study so they can work productively and ethically with others to advance our understanding of the physical world. We also want them to faithfully steward that knowledge in serving others, apply it in managing the creation well, and worship by bringing glory to God.
