The word “Apologetics” comes from the Greek word apologia, from 1 Peter 3:15. The goal of this course in Apologetics is to prepare the Church to defend the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The student completing the course will able to explain the truth in love according to 1 Cor. 13; and to engage a wayward culture with conviction, confidence and clarity, while keeping the Gospel of Jesus Christ close to their hearts.
By taking ownership of their faith; knowing not just what they believe, but why they believe it, each student will be equipped to retain their faith even while immersed in a secular environment. By the end of the semester, the student should be able to think critically and to articulate their Christian beliefs using sound logic and reason.
