dc.description.abstract Darwin's theory of evolution has been a point of debate within the church since its publication in 1858. Many Christians believe that evolution contradicts the story of creation in Genesis, and instead support theories such as Intelligent Design (ID). The issue has even arisen in school corporations across the country, with some insisting that evolution be emphasized as a theory only and ID be taught as well. In this thesis I present how Christian leaders in my hometown of Valparaiso, Indiana perceive Darwin's theory of evolution via natural selection and what effect, if any, it has on their teaching. I hope to clarify different churches' stances on the topic so citizens in similar communities can understand how the two interact and find the balance between science and faith.
