ABOUT

When Andy Steiger and his wife, Nancy founded Apologetics Canada in 2010, they were motivated to stop the exodus of young people from 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. We are continually amazed by the number of young adults we have had the privilege of leading to faith in Jesus Christ. 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.

What is Apologetics?

Apologetics comes from the Greek word apologia, meaning to give an answer or defense, specifically of Christian truth claims. The Apostle Peter exhorts all Christians to be prepared to give an apologia for the hope we have in Christ (1 Peter 3:15). Apologetics is about Christians understanding what they believe and why, and knowing how to effectively communicate those beliefs. 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. R.C. Sproul calls this the most anti-intellectual period in the history of the church and that is something we believe needs to change. We believe along with C.S. Lewis who wrote, “Good philosophy must exist, if for no other reason, because bad philosophy needs to be answered” (The Weight of Glory). Every Christian needs to be able to give an answer, a reasonable one, for the hope they have in Jesus Christ.

How are we structured?

What do we Believe?

We recognize the 66 books of the Protestant canon of the Bible as the inspired word of God and the only infallible rule of faith and practice. We also recognize these post-biblical creeds and confessions as valuable and faithful, though not infallible, expressions of Christian orthodoxy.
