Defending Our Faith


Number of Lessons: 6Avg. Lesson Length: 6 MinutesTime Required: 3 Hours MinimumLevel: Basic


This course will guide you in ways to defend your faith while expressing God’s love toward those who oppose you. The emphasis is not on “winning the argument” but on planting seeds of the gospel in your conversations. First Peter 3:15 says, “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.”

Great course that will help me to witness to those of other beliefs outside of Christianity.

A very informative presentation! I did not know what Muslims, Mormons, Roman Catholics, or LGBT believed. Wow! Thank you Jesus for saving me!

These courses gave me greater understanding of people’s lives on the streets, broken homes, drugs and gangs, and I can closely relate to my youthful days but it gives me greater knowledge to break away from negatives of life to greater joy in God.

I greatly enjoyed this course because I learned more specific information about the different belief systems and how to witness effectively to them. Looking forward to continuing with these studies.

This opened my eyes for the need to look at what other beliefs teach, and to humbly direct them to Christ.
