The mission of Reason For Truth is to equip both the hearts and the minds of today’s Christians in the twenty-first century church. We do this by way of working with small groups, churches, and para church organizations. Our focus is to equip the believer to be able to both defend and advance the Gospel through evangelism using apologetics. We help believers with identifying objections to the Christian faith and refuting those objections with rational arguments based on Biblical truth. In addition to equipping for a defense, we also train believers to be able to give positive, proactive, and truthful reasons for why the Gospel is the truth of God. This includes giving a biblical, philosophical, scientific, and metaphysical reason for Christianity.
