At the most recent Advanced Expository Workshop, Matthew McKellar presented the following five reasons (slightly modified) for preaching creation
1. The Bible places great significance upon it (Gen 1:1; John 1:1–3).
2. Creation is a key component of the church’s faith.
3. One’s doctrine of creation is directly related to the understanding of other doctrines.
4. Creation helps one differentiate Christianity from other religions and worldviews.
5. Creation promotes the glory of God.
