The First People


**We believe in “Young Earth Creationism” and teach from that viewpoint. In this section, we explore the controversial idea of the Pre-Adamite hypothesis to encourage the children to study to show themselves approved. If you have an issue with these views feel free to skip over that particular material or the first few units that will discuss those views and move on down the timeline to a time period with less controversy. Thanks!
