What Is Apologetics?

The word apologetics comes from the Greek word "apologia" [pronounced: apollo-gee-ah] which means "speaking in defense," and is found in I Peter:

I Peter 3:15

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer (apologia) to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines apologetics this way:

1: systematic argumentative discourse in defense [as of a doctrine]

2 : a branch of theology devoted to the defense of the divine origin and authority of Christianity

We Begin In the Beginning

Begin Ministries focuses on "CREATION" apologetics: a systematic defense to questions surrounding the first eleven chapters of Genesis


We focus on Genesis chapters 1-11 because they are the foundation for the rest of the Bible & the Christian faith. Consider this: 


If the events in Genesis 1-3 had never

happened, there would be no need

for the rest of the Bible. 


Secondly, we focus on these chapters because they are the most attacked in all the Bible, and for good reason. Psalm 11:3 asks, "...If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"  Satan is attacking the foundation of our faith, family and country because he knows everything fails without a strong foundation. 


We find that many believers have never really read and studied the events covered in Genesis chapters 1-11 (creation, the fall, the flood, and the Tower of Babel). They are certainly familiar with these events but the details are largely shrouded in mystery for them. 


Through our presentations and Bible studies, believers gain a firm understanding of the foundational events that root our faith and confidence in the Bible, understanding it really can be trusted from the very first verse. 


When believers visit natural history museums, zoos, and other places where claims about our origins are made, they recognize & understand the error of the claims. When they listen to debates, read textbooks, or watch TV shows about our origins, they can critically assess and properly weigh statements. 


Ultimately, our goal at Begin Ministries is to enable Christians to defend their faith and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ confidently & effectively.
