OBU is one of the few universities that offers an undergraduate program in Christian apologetics. By studying apologetics, you will deepen and strengthen your own understanding of God and your commitment to Him. Our program will challenge you to establish stronger intellectual foundations and principles for your beliefs. You will be equipped to gain insights and formulate arguments through your understanding of history, theology, philosophy, science and sociology.
With a cultural climate today full of confusion, varied messages and dilution of the truth of scripture, an ability to vigorously defend and promote the truth of Christ is paramount. As a student you will become well-prepared to acquire and maintain data, insights and arguments that give you a strong platform for defending the Christian faith and sharing it with confidence and compassion.
