After 52 years of fruitful ministry, the Institute for Creation Research is renewing its commitment to rigorous scientific research that affirms the truth of Scripture. As a staff, we’re delighted to reveal a new logo that reflects our mission and highlights an exciting field of research.
We’re still the ICR you know, love, and support, and our foundation remains the same: We seek to honor the Lord Jesus Christ as our Creator, Savior, and returning King.
The Inspiration for ICR’s New Logo
“ICR’s most pressing assignment is to fundamentally change the way people understand biology. Our task is to construct a completely new theory of biological design that incorporates recent discoveries and respects the biblical narrative. The theory would explain hundreds of fascinating examples of creatures’ abilities from an organism-centered, engineering-based perspective that gives glory to their Creator— and not to nature.
“We hope this theory will become the fundamental, design-based principle uniting biological explanations in Christian textbooks and museums educating future generations of young believers. We pray that an engineering-based approach to biology will spark a second creationist revival…and once again stir up a sense of certainty in Christian truth.”
— ICR President Dr. Randy Guliuzza
The new DNA icon spotlights the marvelous creativity of the Lord Jesus Christ’s design within living creatures.
Our name and purpose haven’t changed. We still seek to consistently exalt the Lord Jesus through everything we communicate. Whether you just learned about our ministry or have supported us from the beginning, ICR remains your trustworthy resource for cutting-edge science that confirms the Bible. We’re excited to increase our impact by revealing the wonders of divine engineering within the realm of biology.
You’ll recognize the dark blue from our previous logo. The continuity expresses our commitment to ICR’s past and keeps it connected to the logo of our Dallas creation museum, the ICR Discovery Center for Science & Earth History. The blues and greens in the new ICR logo represent our innovative biological research and renewed effort to clearly communicate creation truth in order to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and equip Christians with a strong, reliable defense of the faith.
What’s the meaning behind the new logo?
The new DNA icon spotlights the marvelous creativity of the Lord Jesus Christ’s design within living creatures. The dark blue comes from our previous logo. The continuity expresses our commitment to ICR’s past and keeps it connected to the logo of our Dallas creation museum, the ICR Discovery Center for Science & Earth History. And the blues and greens represent our innovative biological research.
Is ICR changing in other ways?
We’re emphasizing biological research and expanding our methods of outreach, but rest assured our foundation is still the same: We seek to honor the Lord Jesus Christ as we uncover cutting-edge science that confirms the Bible.
Why does the logo say “ICR” and “Institute for Creation Research”?
We included both our full name and the acronym we’re commonly known by so our ministry can be easily identified.
Does ICR only do biological research now?
We sense that ICR’s most pressing assignment is to change how people understand biology, but we’re not scaling anything back in the physical sciences. Research on geology, the Ice Age, and such will continue just as before.
Where can I go to learn more about your biological research efforts?
ICR President Dr. Randy Guliuzza summarizes ICR’s overall mission as well as our purpose in pursuing biological research in this article. We will provide specific research updates at ICR.org and in future issues of Acts & Facts magazine.
