Ministries: Founded in 1997, Veritas is an international ministry
committed to effectively communicating the Gospel, and credibly
commending and defending the intellectual coherence of the Christian
faith, by offering an informed and sensitive response to questions of
moral choice from the vantage point of Christian conviction.
With an emphasis on the evangelistic use of cultural apologetics,
this ministry has focused specific, though not exclusive, attention on
the rapidly emerging array of bioethical quandaries (e.g., human
cloning, physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia, human embryonic stem
cell research, alternative medicine, etc.) and employed these as a lens
through which to evaluate and understand shifts in contemporary culture,
help believers to cultivate an authentic Christian worldview, and reach
the skeptic with the good news of Jesus Christ. Each year dozens of churches, seminaries, universities,
medical schools, hospitals, conferences, camps, and organizations from
around the world, representing a wide variety of denominations,
interests, and academic affiliations, host a Veritas seminar series to
explore the relationship between Christianity and culture.
