CARM is a 501(c)3, non-profit, Christian ministry dedicated to the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ and the promotion and defense of the Christian Gospel, Doctrine, and Theology. CARM analyzes religions such as Islam, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormonism, Roman Catholicism, Universalism, Wicca, etc., and compares them to the Bible. We also analyze secular ideas such as abortion, atheism, evolution, and relativism. In all our analyses we use logic and evidence to defend Christianity and promote the truth of the Bible which is the inspired word of God.
As Paul makes clear in Romans, the goal of spiritual growth is a transformed life. The way of transformation is through the renewed mind. The renewed mind is one that is informed by the mind of Christ. The mind of Christ is revealed in the Word of God. The transformed mind is a mind that lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. In simple terms, if you want spiritual growth, if you want a renewed mind, you have to feed your mind with the Word of God.
Ligonier Ministries is an international Christian education organization established in 1971 to equip Christians to articulate what they believe and why they believe it. Founded by theologian Dr. R.C. Sproul, proclaiming God's holiness is central to the ministry's purpose. To this end, the ministry produces the Renewing Your Mind radio broadcasts, The Reformation Study Bible (ESV), Tabletalk devotional magazine, new titles by Dr. Sproul and other contemporary authors and theologians through the Reformation Trust Publishing imprint, numerous teaching series, sacred music, national and regional conferences, and an extensive catalog with more than 3,000 unique resources.
Historic church documents can be found here. It is an outstanding resource.
The Center for Reformed Theology and Apologetics (CRTA) is dedicated to providing biblically sound online resources for the edification of God's people. The Center is committed to the system of doctrine known as Calvinism, which we see to be the most biblically faithful systematization of the Bible's teachings. The Owner is a Reformed Christian committed to a strict subscriptionist view of the Westminster Standards, yet many of the articles on this site represent a wider view of the Faith. Please use discretion in all that you read here -- and everywhere else too.
To provide Christians worldwide with carefully researched information and well-reasoned answers that encourage them in their faith and equip them to intelligently represent it to people influenced by ideas and teachings that assault or undermine orthodox, biblical Christianity.
About the Christian Research Institute.
The Christian Research Institute exists to provide Christians worldwide with carefully researched information and well-reasoned answers that encourage them in their faith and equip them to intelligently represent it to people influenced by ideas and teachings that assault or undermine orthodox, biblical Christianity. In carrying out this mission, CRI's strategy is expressed by the acronym E-Q-U-I-P:
The "E" in EQUIP represents the word essentials. CRI is committed to the maxim: "In essentials unity, in nonessentials liberty, and in all things charity."
The "Q" in the acronym EQUIP represents the word questions. In addition to focusing on essentials, CRI answers people's questions regarding cults, culture, and Christianity.
The "U" in the word EQUIP represents the word user-friendly. As much as possible, CRI is committed to taking complex issues and making them understandable and accessible to the lay Christian.
This brings us to the "I" in EQUIP, which stands for integrity. Recall Paul's admonition: "Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers."
Finally, the "P" in the acronym EQUIP represents the word para-church. CRI is deeply committed to the local church as the God-ordained vehicle for equipping, evangelism, and education.
Many companies define success based on the dollars coming in, but at The Lampo Group, we define our success by the number of lives changed: listeners getting out of debt, readers taking their first Baby Step and saving $1,000, FPU graduates investing for their future. We learned early on that if we help enough people, the money will come. Our mission statement isn't just lip service—it's our mantra:
"The Lampo Group, Inc. is providing biblically based, common-sense education and empowerment which gives HOPE to everyone from the financially secure to the financially distressed."
BreakPoint is the worldview ministry of Prison Fellowship Ministries.

BreakPoint provides a Christian perspective on today’s news and trends via radio, interactive media, and print.
Sharing the Gospel:
The primary aim of Gospel for Asia's ministry is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with those who have never before heard His name.
Gospel for Asia trains and sends national missionaries because they have proven extremely effective. They are already familiar with the language and culture, and they live at the level of the people they serve, thus removing many social barriers.
Gospel for Asia sends 100 percent of the money you donate for work on the mission field to the field. Nothing is taken out for administrative expenses.

Our missionWorld Vision is an international partnership of Christians whose mission is to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice, and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God.
Desiring God exists to say... God's ultimate goal is to glorify himself.
And that's good news.
Everything we do aims to spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ.
Focus on the Family's Mission Statement: To cooperate with the Holy Spirit in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible by nurturing and defending the God-ordained institution of the family and promoting biblical truths worldwide.
The secularist philosopher Socrates once posed a relevant question Christians should easily answer today. "Is it better to suffer an injustice," he once asked, "than to commit it?" The answer for Christians should be YES!
A Call of Christian Conscience Christians, when they have lived up to the highest ideals of their faith, have defended the weak and vulnerable and worked tirelessly to protect and strengthen vital institutions of civil society, beginning with the family.
We are Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical Christians who have united at this hour to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them. These truths are:
Inasmuch as these truths are foundational to human dignity and the well-being of society, they are inviolable and non-negotiable. Because they are increasingly under assault from powerful forces in our culture, we are compelled today to speak out forcefully in their defense, and to commit ourselves to honoring them fully no matter what pressures are brought upon us and our institutions to abandon or compromise them. We make this commitment not as partisans of any political group but as followers of Jesus Christ, the crucified and risen Lord, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Creating Christian content that changes the people who change the world.
Since 1956, the communications ministry of
Christianity Today International
has been committed to this mission.
What exactly does commitment to Christ look like to the divergent world of the 21st century?
What is the Scripture saying to a church in the midst of social, cultural and political change and upheaval?
These were just two of the questions that evangelist Billy Graham sought to give prophetic guidance to when he envisioned Christianity Today magazine. Today, Dr. Graham's vision has become an international communications ministry that now includes multiple award-winning magazines, books, tapes, curricula, CDs and an ever-expanding online presence.
Initially focused on providing pastors with a strong energetic voice of evangelical leadership, CTI now serves the global church with resources designed to meet the needs of both Christian leaders and laity alike — adults, youth, and families.
Westminster Seminary California (WSC) is a Christian institution seeking to glorify God through graduate theological study. Its primary responsibility is to educate future pastors for Christian churches, especially for Presbyterian and Reformed denominations. It also provides theological education for others who will serve in the Christian community and the larger society.
WSC offers instruction in biblical, theological, and ministerial disciplines to both men and women as the heart of a program to help students to develop intellectually and spiritually as leaders. While the focus of our programs is to educate and prepare men for office-bearing ordained ministries of instruction and leadership as pastors, WSC also furnishes training in Scripture and theology to both women and men who are preparing to serve Christ and His church in vocations other than the ordained leadership ministries so that the whole body of Christ may be enriched through the diverse gifts bestowed by God’s Spirit.
Because zeal without knowledge or knowledge without zeal can only injure the church, WSC seeks to develop in its students a balanced combination of scholarship and Christ-like piety. Westminster Seminary California seeks to establish a community of Christian research and scholarship where proper cultivation of the mind increases the devotion of the heart.
