What is RCCA ?

Why RCCA ?

The world today is flooded with new schools of thought, new ideas, new sciences and new beliefs. How do you understand and respond to the intellectual chaos around you? Do questions from sceptics often throw you in a quandary - at a loss to articulate your Christian worldview? Are you looking to provide yourself with the necessary tools to rationally engage with secular thinkers?

If you have a passion to evangelise by bridging the gap between the questions of today's culture and the answer of the Gospel, then the RZIM Centre for Christian Apologetics (RCCA) is just for you.

Vision of RCCA

RCCA seeks "to be a centre of excellence in Asia for building the capacities of Christians in Evangelistic Apologetics by equipping them to respond in a meaningful, intelligent and culturally relevant manner to the issues raised in the market place and thereby impact influencers of society with the credibility of the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Objectives of RCCA

  • To equip and train Christians to be evangelistically effective apologists
  • To enable Christian thinkers to engage the contemporary culture by facilitating the formulation of Christian responses on complex intellectual and cultural issues
