The Christian faith is in crisis.

Thousands of churches are closing every year, well over 1/3 of pastors have considered quitting the ministry, and the decline of Christianity among the general population, particularly youth, continues at a rapid pace.

And because the church is in crisis, so is our world.

Removal of the Judeo-Christian foundations of Western society has provoked a rise in suicide rates among teenagers and young adults, an increase in violent crime, and widespread and unhinged disintegration and despair within society.

To cultivate the level of discipleship needed to strengthen the church in our modern world and address the problems in contemporary culture Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES – established in 1992) presents the outreach initiative, Truth That Matters.

Truth That Matters (TTM) serves the mission of SES to train men and women, based on the inerrant and infallible written Word of God, for the evangelization of the world and defense of the historic Christian Faith through systematic efforts to remedy gaps between the current needs of individual Christian believers, churches, and organizations and the very best in apologetic, evangelistic, and discipleship resources.

Truth That Matters carries forward SES’s unique program in classical apologetics, love of Christ, high view of Scripture, and defense of biblical inerrancy as described in the Chicago Statements while seeking to:

  • Engage with and equip individual believers, churches, and organizations “on the ground,”
  • Build trust and credibility through doctrinally-sound, innovative, and effective resources and
  • Create positive, biblical impact that empowers the church and stabilizes our culture.
