Presbyterian Association on Science, Technology, and the Christian Faith (PASTCF)
All members of the Presbyterian Church (USA) will come to understand that the knowledge acquired through scientific inquiry and technological innovation are gifts of God intended to provoke theological insight, promote social justice, facilitate gratuitous kindness, and inspire self-giving humility in relation to the whole of God's creation.
As an association related to the Presbyterian Church (USA), it is our mission:
- to point the Presbyterian Church (USA) to scientific and technological developments as they provoke Christian theological reformation, stimulate ethical reflection, and affect the moral actions of the Christian community;
- to call upon the Presbyterian Church (USA) to incorporate the discoveries of science and the capabilities of science-based technologies in its worship, education, and mission of service in the world;
- to affirm Christians for whom science and technology are calls upon their lives and to encourage their distinctive responsibilities in the Body of Christ.
