We equip current and emerging Christian cultural leaders with biblical worldview, Christian philosophy and cultural apologetics studies through residential training programs and print and digital resources.
Through a distinctly Christian philosophy, cultural apologetic, and biblical worldview teaching, we are working to bring all human thought and action under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and his Word, re-forming a comprehensive faith that applies to all of life, recovering and exploring the scriptural framework of a Christian mind and social order.
Our aim is that God's kingdom people become a reservoir of strength out of which successive generations of church and cultural leaders will emerge, able to formulate, articulate and credibly defend a truly scriptural view of life as the sole source of truth, freedom and beauty, thereby shaping the future to the glory of God. (Phil. 1:7; Col. 1:15-20).
Culture is properly understood as the public manifestation of the worship of a people. As religion externalized it is the concrete outworking of what any society believes is the ultimate origin, purpose and meaning of life.
St. Paul tells us in Romans 1 that in the final analysis there are only two types of worship. The worship of the creator (Christ), or the worship of the creature (something created). When a person turns to the Lord Jesus in repentance and faith they are made new creatures (2 Cor. 5:17), their hearts being redirected towards true worship. This radical redirection necessarily means the re-creation of true culture, which the Bible calls the kingdom of God. Both the challenge and the joy of being a Christian is that we are inescapably part of this gospel culture and, though against stiff spiritual opposition, we have the privilege of being called by the Lord to be co-workers in the reconciliation of all things to God, "…for from him and through him and to him are all things…" Rom. 11:36.
