To set apart Christ in our hearts as Lord and always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that is within us,

with gentleness and respect, all for the glory of God.

"Helping the thinker believe" and "Helping the believer think" - Ravi Zacharias

RZIM Centre for Christian Apologetics

RZIM Centre for Christian Apologetics 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'.
We have been conducting a three week Certificate program in Apologetics for many years and have equipped hundreds of participants for evangelism not only from India, but also from across the world. Our Resource Persons include the best from not only our country, but also from different continents.
The vision of RCCA is "To initiate an ongoing process of building the capacities of Christians in Apologetics to equip them to respond meaningfully, in an intelligent and culturally relevant manner, to the issues raised in the market place and thereby influence opinion makers and leaders of the society with the Gospel of Jesus Christ".
This 3-week residential certificate course on Christian Apologetics is held thrice a year where students from not only India but also other countries like Middle East, USA, Canada, Indonesia have graduated and stepped out of the portals of RCCA.
As of May 2012 we have equipped 16 batches of 320 delegates who have come from various walks of life and professional background.
