Our Name and What it Means

317Ministries.net is the web presence of The Research Center for Apologetics International, Inc., a 501(c)(3) Public Charity as defined by the IRS.

317Ministries.net is an Apologetic Ministry which defends the Christian Faith and advances the Truth-claims of the Christian worldview.

The name of this Ministry is adopted from 2 Timothy 3:17 (especially for the interpretation of the Scriptures), and this Ministry exists for the purpose of equipping Christians to defend the objective, Historic Truth-claims of the Christian Faith. The intent of this Ministry is to engage both the heart, and the mind with the intellectual content, and substance of the Biblical worldview.

This work is done simultaneously, as two sides of a single coin. The work is done through a careful exegesis (and a critical explanation or analysis; and interpretation of the infallible claims of the Bible), and its Self-revelation of the infinite-personal, living God, as the final authority –for mankind.
