ABOUT ASA 2020


"To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good." (1 Cor 12:7)

Since its inception, the American Scientific Affiliation has been committed to integrating, communicating, and facilitating properly researched science and orthodox theology in service of both the church and the scientific community. This is not merely a societal distinction, but a biblical mandate (1 Cor 12). What is sound in principle, however, is much harder in practice, especially in our increasingly specialized society.

ASA 2020 will provide an unusual opportunity for our largely scientific audience to interact with theologians who have focused their studies on areas of theology and biblical study that directly bear on the relationships between Christian faith and scientific discovery and practice. The conference will both lay some foundations for integration and provide case studies that indicate what is at stake and why the whole body of Christ must work together for the common good not only of the church, but also of the world (1 Cor 12:7).
