Introducing the Missouri Baptist Apologetics Network

The Missouri Baptist Apologetics Network is a group of church leaders committed to the defense of the Christian faith and called to equip believers to more effectively share their faith.

Our Vision

Our vision is to equip every Missouri Baptist to defend the Christian faith with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15-16).

Our Mission

We are MBC-approved Christian apologists who equip others to defend the faith by speaking and providing resources that enable Missouri Baptists to become bolder and more effective in sharing Christ with others.

Show Me Why

Thoughts from Missouri Baptists on Defending the Christian Faith

Show Me Why is a collection of writings from the members of the Missouri Baptist Apologetics Network. From the biblical case for apologetics… to what it means to be created in the image of God… to a closer look at the founder of the world’s most successful form of counterfeit Christianity, this book engages your mind and encourages your Christian faith.
