Steadfast in the Truth

Are You Ready to Take Your Faith to the Next Level?

In a post-Christian world, the ability to remain steadfast in the truth requires intentional preparation. Whether you need integrated apologetics-focused Christian education or cutting-edge Christian worldview and discipleship resources for you or your church, we have you covered.

Truth that Matters

Integrated Christian Education with an

Apologetics Focus

To effectively engage our post-Christian culture with the Gospel, you will need a deeply integrated understanding of philosophy, theology, and apologetics. This integrated apologetics-focused approach is the core of every SES program. Whether you’re seeking a degree or certificate in apologetics, philosophy, biblical studies, or something else, the foundation is the same. Good philosophy provides a solid foundation from which to do theology, and both provide necessary tools for sound apologetics. Together, all three disciplines aid in removing obstacles to the Gospel (evangelism) and in building mature disciples who live the Gospel (discipleship) and are steadfast in the truth.

    "Give me, O Lord, a steadfast heart, which no unworthy affection may drag downwards; give me an unconquered heart, which no tribulation can wear out; give me an upright heart, which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside. Bestow on me also, O Lord my God, understanding to know you, diligence to seek you, wisdom to find you, and faithfulness that may finally embrace you, through Jesus Christ our Lord."
