The first conference of the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences, "A Christian Perspective on the Foundations of Mathematics," held at Wheaton College April 28-30, 1977.
The published conference proceedings were edited by Robert Brabenec.
The ACMS has four purposes for impacting the lives of Christians in the mathematical sciences, each arising from and connected to our mission statement and statement of belief:
• To encourage exploration of the relationships among faith, scholarship, and teaching.
• To promote meaningful Christian interaction and relationships, providing a community in which there is no separation between faith life and professional life.
• To encourage research and writing, especially on topics exploring the relationships among faith, scholarship, and teaching.
• To promote innovative and effective teaching.
