As chemists who adhere to the Christian faith, our goal is to explore our mandate to be stewards of creation, and specifically, to recognize the hand of God in the intricate details of matter. The closer we look at what God has made, the more wonderful we find it to be. Chemists study existing substances and work to create new substances, in an effort to contribute to better understanding and appreciation of our world, and to meet human needs creatively and responsibly.
