Welcome to the Christian apologetics ministry of the Missouri Baptist Convention. Apologetics may be defined simply as a reasonable defense of the Christian faith, and we’re here to help you and your fellow church members become better equipped to share the message of Christ with others. As the apostle Peter writes, followers of Jesus should always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks us for a reason for the hope that is in us, and to do so with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15-16).
These webpages give you the tools to get started, from downloadable resources to information about how to host an apologetics conference in your church. You also may check out recommended apologetics books and websites, sign up for a free monthly e-newsletter, and order the popular manual many churches are using, The Apologist’s Tool Kit. Rob Phillips leads the MBC’s apologetics ministry and is eager to help you “earnestly contend for the faith once delivered to the saints” (Jude 3).
