What is Christian Apologetics?
What is Christian apologetics? In this short video you will learn from the Bible what apologetics is and the purpose it serves in our Christian witness.
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” –I Peter 3:15
Is Water Baptism Necessary for Salvation?
Is water baptism necessary for salvation? This subject has been hotly debated between Christians and those in certain cult groups (Churches of Christ and Oneness Pentecostals, etc.) and the apostate Roman Catholic church for decades.
In order for water baptism to be considered necessary for salvation it must be part of the gospel message because it is the gospel that provides salvation. (Romans 1:16) But is water baptism synonymous with the gospel of Jesus Christ as some pseudo Christian groups claim it is?
In the video Is Water Baptism Necessary for Salvation, we will get a clear answer to this question from the apostle Paul in I Corinthians 1:17. After prayerfully and carefully examining the text with me in the video, you’ll see the clear cut answer to this longtime theological question.
Are You a Good Person?
If you are a non-Chrisitan and you are reading this, can I ask you a question? Are you a good person? Better yet, do you think God perceives you as a good person?

If you are a Christian but you do not know how to share the gospel with others, this video is for you as well.

(A Dialogue Discussion)
CHRISTIAN: Hi. How are you doing today?
UNBELIEVER: I’m doing well.
CHRISTIAN: (Offering Unbeliever a Gospel tract) Did you get one of these?
UNBELIEVER: No, I didn’t. What is it?
CHRISTIAN: It is a Gospel tract.
If you were to die today, would you go to Heaven?
UNBELIEVER: Yes, I believe I would.
CHRISTIAN: OK… Do you believe you have kept the Ten Commandments?
UNBELIEVER: I Think I have.
CHRISTIAN: Let’s see if you have. Have you ever told a lie?
UNBELIEVER: Yes, I have.
CHRISTIAN: OK… Have you ever stolen something that wasn’t yours?
UNBELIEVER: A couple of times I did, but not anymore.
CHRISTIAN: Jesus said, “Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed
adultery with her already in his heart.” (Matthew 5:28 KJV). Have you looked
upon a woman/man with lust?
UNBELIEVER: Of course I have!! Who hasn’t?
CHRISTIAN: According to the bible, it says, “And as it is appointed unto
men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Hebrews 9:27 KJV). God knows
you have lied, stolen, and committed adultery in your heart; so when you face
God on judgment day, will you be innocent or guilty?
UNBELIEVER: I… I guess I would be guilty?
CHRISITIAN: OK… Do you believe you would go to Heaven or go to Hell?
UNBELIEVER: …To Hell.
CHRISTIAN: Does that concern you?
UNBELIEVER: Yes, it does concern me.
CHRISTIAN: Do you know what God did so you wouldn’t have to go to hell?
UNBELIEVER: I’m not sure. What?
CHRISTIAN: The Bible says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting
(eternal) life. (John 3:16 KJV). God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to die for your sins
on the cross. You broke the law, but Jesus paid your fine on the cross.
Jesus rose from the dead three days later and now wants to forgive you of your
sins. God doesn’t want you to go to hell. The Bible says, “The Lord is not slack
concerning His promise as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to
us ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to
repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
God calls us to repent (turn from) our sins; believe Jesus Christ is the Son of
God; that Jesus died for our sins and rose three days later from the dead. By
doing these things, we will be forgiven of our sins and go to Heaven when we
The Bible says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and
believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be
saved. (Romans 10:9). Do you understand now what you need to do to go to
Heaven when you die?
UNBELIEVER: Yes, I do understand
CHRISTIAN: Good, so what is stopping you now from being a Christian?
UNBELIEVER: Nothing really.
CHRISTIAN: OK… Will you receive Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord and be forgiven of
UNBELIEVER: Yes, I will.
