Theos Matters is a Christian internet based ministry dedicated to helping Christians grow and be equipped; while also providing answers to the sincerely curious, and providing a defense for Christian truth to the sincerely adversarial.
Theos in the Greek New Testament is the word used for God, and subsequently the reason for the name of this site. Our goal here is to show that God truly matters in all matters of life.
We have a dual purpose of inreach and outreach.
To reach to those already inside the body of Christ (the Church) to encourage and help believers grow more mature in their faith. The local church should be the primary means for the growth and development of the Christian as they submit themselves to the shepherding of their pastoral leadership (Ephesians 4:11-12; Hebrews 13:7; 1 Peter 5:1-4). Theos Matters is a supplemental resource to the efforts of the church in carrying out the equipping of the saints.
To reach out to those outside of the Church who are either sincerely curious or sincerely adversarial. Here we strive to give a compelling defense of the Christian faith as well as explore the reasons why Christians believe what we believe (1 Peter 3:15).
We know some people already have their minds fortified against Christianity or any form of religion. We hope to offer compelling defenses and reasons for thinking otherwise.
We know others might still be searching for answers as to what is real and should be believed as true. We hope to offer helpful hope and answers to any doubts or questions.
Above all we want to honor our great God by making much of Jesus Christ and what He has done for the whole world with His sacrificial offer of Himself as the payment for sins against holy God.
