OUR STORY

When Andy Steiger and his wife, Nancy, founded Apologetics Canada in 2010, they were motivated to stop the exodus of young people leaving the church. God however had much more in store. This generation of young people both Christians and non-Christians alike have questions and are seeking truth.  The challenge in Western culture is communicating the message of Jesus in a way that people can understand and appreciate. Sharing the gospel requires us all to understand and speak the language of culture and address the questions being asked with intellectual honesty, gentleness and respect. When we do this in the love and winsomeness of Christ Jesus, lives are impacted and culture is changed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Apologetics comes from the Greek word apologia, meaning to give an answer or reason, specifically for Christian truth claims. The Apostle Peter exhorts all Christians to be prepared to give answers and reasons for the hope we have in Christ and to do so with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15). In other words, apologetics is about Christians understanding what they believe and why, and knowing how to communicate those beliefs effectively. We believe apologetics is a key task of discipleship and for the health and growth of the church. Apologetics is not a new trend but a Christian tradition. It has been a critical task of Christians for millennia and is as important today as ever before.
