Creators for Christ Mission Statement

The mission of Creators for Christ is to create works of literature and art that open hearts and minds to the truth, beauty, and love of God as revealed in Scripture and creation. 

Stories and art are powerful means for communicating biblical truth. Chuck Colson, the late founder of Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, expressed it this way:

 Stories shape our thoughts, move our emotions, and enlarge our imaginations. The images we plant in our minds have an enormous influence over the kind of people we become.

They both express and shape our beliefs and values. 

Think of the effective use Jesus made of images and stories. He could have simply said, “Take care of people who are hurt and victimized.” Instead, He spun the tale of the Good Samaritan. He could have just said, “God forgives your sins, so forgive others.” Instead, He told the parable of the unmerciful servant. Why? Because a story gets at aspects of truth that are
beyond the power of didactic teaching. 

For the Christian, the arts are an important way to understand God and
His creation. In a post-Christian culture, those who blend artistic gifts with Christian faith can help lead us back to a biblical worldview.
That is why the Church should encourage them.

Michael and Sarah Dowling invite all who resonate with the mission of Creators for Christ to join them on the journey.
