equip Christians with a culturally relevant apologetic, enabling them to have a deeper level of
personal faith, contend for that faith, and to enter arenas of resistance and reclaim ground
lost to skepticism, secularism, and other alien philosophies. We seek to impact anyone, on
whatever territory they may be, including thinkers, leaders, and opinion makers, with the
eternal truths of God’s Word so that all hearts and minds are in tune with the heart and mind of God.

Augustine Fellowship Study Center
http://www.augustinefellowship.org/.
Augustine Fellowship Study Center is a non-profit educational organization committed to helping
people develop a comprehensive understanding of the world-and-life view known as classical Christian theism.
Augustine Fellowship (AFSC) places special emphasis on identifying and explaining the major points of difference
between Christian and non-Christian worldviews. The task of AFSC is therefore both educational and apologetic.
While constantly striving for sound scholarly standards, the study center seeks to provide a clear and understandable
approach to complex philosophical, religious, and cultural issues.

Thank you for coming and welcome to The Banner of Truth. For the sake of the purity of Truth, this web presence was created. There is error
upon error being heaped upon this world and upon the Church itself that must be addressed! With
this site, my goal is to educate people, confront the lies, tear down
the Enemy in the name of Jesus, and to glorify God. Please understand that I am not attacking any peoples in particular,
but the teachings and lifestyles they promote. This site also provides many links to good, solid Christian
organizations that I believe will be a blessing to you and help you in your walk with Christ. Use what is here to minister to others and
disciple them as the Lord would have you. Before revival can come about, there must be reformation!

In an effort to assist the churches, we formed Midwest Christian Outreach, Inc. in April
of 1995, with about 12 other like-minded people as a home mission. None of us have
ever been involved in a cult but we have a passion for the truth of God’s Word. Our
mission is to give clear answers, and a solid defense of the orthodox Biblical faith,
both to unbelievers and to those who are deceived into joining cultic groups such as
the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, the International Churches of Christ, and so on.
