The Evidence from Astronomy that Points to an All-Powerful Creator
Dr. Hugh Ross is a Christian astrophysicist who has spent his life studying the universe and seeking to understand God’s creation.
By the age of 16, he realized there was clear evidence that the universe had a beginning. He realized that if there was a beginning, there must have been a Beginner. So he began his search for the “who” and the “how”.
Dr. Ross explains in this series that God has given us two books: the book of nature--what we can find out about Him from what He has created--and the book of Scripture, God’s written record of all He wants us to know. Do they agree? What does each tell us about God?

Foundation created by Dr. Hugh Ross
Reasons to Believe (RTB) was established in 1986 by world-renowned Christian astrophysicist, Dr. Hugh Ross. Initially a skeptic, Dr. Ross was later convinced by evidence that words of the Bible are trustworthy.
From a tiny office in Sierra Madre, CA, and a small crew of volunteers, RTB quickly grew. In 1995 RTB unveiled the first Christian website which by now has expanded into a wellspring of articles, blogs, and videos. In 2003 Reasons Institute was launched—a premiere provider of science apologetics courses. RTB is homebase to a number of communities, such as our scholar community, apologetics community, regional chapters, and Monthly Partners.
Over the years, a team of scholars has come alongside Hugh in this quest to show how science reveals God. Together these scholars have taken the gospel worldwide, bringing scientific evidence for the God of the Bible to more than a dozen countries on five continents. In July of 2022, Dr. Ross entrusted his CEO title and the organization’s leadership to one of his most accomplished colleagues, biochemist Dr. Fazale “Fuz” Rana.
Through the strength of its supporters and by the guidance and grace of God, RTB boldly continues to fulfill its calling to “Go into all the world and preach the Good News.” Its message remains unchanged: Nature and Scripture come from one and the same Source.
