About His Creation

Who We Are

The ministry of HIS CREATION is a great adventure! We desire to draw people into a sweeter knowledge, love, and worship of our Creator, Jesus Christ. We are dedicated to exploring the universe in order to magnify the glorious attributes of Christ revealed in nature all around us (Romans 1:20). Using Scripture as our lens, we especially desire to share His wonderful character, and the marvelous aspects of His creation, by teaching Christ-exalting science to children and adults with a child-like heart. We publish easy-to-read materials for families, individuals, and organizations all over the world. Each of our publications is designed to serve many purposes:

  • Encourage worship of our precious Lord Jesus
  • Investigate God's wonderful character (Theology Proper)
  • Present His Gospel with clarity
  • Provide high-quality lessons (science & nature) for students of all backgrounds—public school, Christian school, homeschool, Sunday school
  • Encourage family reading time and an exploration of God's creation

If you are interested in receiving our publications and want to be placed on our mailing list, please contact us.

What We Believe

  • We believe that there is one, infinite and all-knowing God, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three Persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that God the Father is the one and only Creator, and all of the universe was created by His Spirit through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that nothing in the universe, including all forms of life, could exist without Christ's continuous, sustaining power and care.
  • We believe that we are to worship the Creator, never the created thing.
  • We believe that the Bible is the inerrant and complete Word of God. We affirm the infallibility, sufficiency, and authority of Scripture.
  • We believe that the existence of God is obvious to the world because the creation reveals His attributes. HIS CREATION seeks to discover the special ways Christ's attributes are reflected in creation and communicate this to people around the world.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His second coming.
  • We believe that man is dead in his sins and is therefore in need of salvation through Jesus Christ. We believe that there is only one way to salvation and that is through hearing the true Gospel and faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that the sinner is made spiritually alive by the Holy Spirit and brought by faith to repentance before the throne of grace. We believe that salvation is wholly of God by grace on the basis of the redeeming work of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not on the basis of human effort. We believe that the elect are kept by God's infinite power and are thus perfectly secure in Christ forever.

About the Staff

HIS CREATION is a small, non-denominational ministry founded in 1989. We are based in Colorado but serve families, individuals, and groups all around the world. Our sincerest goal is to honor our Lord Jesus Christ by getting to know Him better. The Bible is Christ's autobiography and, in a sense, Creation represents full-color illustrations of His Word. Creation adds no truth to Scripture, but portrays God's attributes in a wonderful way (Romans 1:20). Our goal at HIS CREATION is to discover our Lord's character by exploring Creation in concert with the full truth of the Word of God.

HIS CREATION's small staff is composed almost entirely of incredibly faithful volunteers. These include: Theology Editor—Pastor Chris Kawa, Executive Pastor of River Oaks Community Church; Tim Carlson, Deputy Chief in the Westminster, Colorado Police Department, and board member for many years; Mrs. Kelley Carlson, Tim's wife and a registered nurse, who has tirelessly drawn countless pictures for the HIS CREATION papers; and certainly not least, Mrs. Colleen Destree, precious wife of Dr. Destree and contributing artist of the HIS CREATION publications. Mr. Rick Destree is Dr. Destree's eldest son, and is currently the chief web designer for HIS CREATION.

Dr. R.J. Destree is the director of HIS CREATION and is the primary author of all the HIS CREATION publications. He first surrendered his life to Christ in September of 1973. He is committed to a serious presentation of the Bible in all of his writings. He is also sincerely committed to an accurate study of science and nature. Dr. Destree has had a deep fascination in God's Creation since he was a little boy. He attended the University of Illinois and received an undergraduate degree in Agricultural Science in 1977. He went on for training at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, and received his M.D. in 1981. R.J. practiced medicine until 1990 when he became the full-time director of HIS CREATION. Since then, he has devoted all of his energies to researching the universe in order to discover reflections of the Lord's character seen in Creation. He is deeply committed to sharing these wonders with children and adults with child-like hearts.

HIS CREATION is also extremely blessed to have co-laborers in foreign countries who are actively spearheading translations of our ministry's publications: Pastor Sergei Golovin of Simferopol, Ukraine, who is President of the Center for Science and Apologetics and who has overseen translation of more than 50 issues of CREATOR into Russian.

All of these servants of Christ have a deep passion for God's glory and desire to see Him honored in many countries around the world. We thank God for their faith, love, and friendship!
