The Carpenter’s Desk is driven by a two-fold vision: firstly, to equip the Church to ably defend, live out, and articulate the Christian worldview, and secondly, to influence the public square by the transforming message of the Gospel.
In Hosea 4:6, we read, ”My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge”. This truth can be mapped to our churches today, where many Christians are on an emotional roller-coaster ride, and not caring enough to cater to the intellect. Our endeavour is to nurture a rational faith, especially among the young, and to train them in evidence-based Christianity.
The apostle Peter urges us in his first letter (3:15) to “be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have”. In the context of 21st century evangelism, the need for biblical apologetics is greater than ever. We look forward to host events in the city and beyond, with the sole agenda of gaining souls for the Kingdom of God, through the art of apologetics. In this, we draw inspiration from Paul's words in II Corinthians 10:5, “We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.”
