    The Founding Location of Ratio Christi. The first apologetics club was formed at ASU and it continues to this day.  Aaron Israel is the current campus minister. This ministry provides a safe and charitable venue for atheists, agnostics, skeptics, and adherents to any religion to investigate the claims of Christianity, discuss religious beliefs, and seek truth without fearing reprisal. While this is a distinctly Christian organization, any student is able to become a member and learn, debate, and explore the connection of faith and reason. We would love to see you at our weekly meetings this semester, so come check us out! We meet in Calloway Peak (room 137A), which is in the student union. Except September 4th and 11th when we meet in Tater Hill (155), which is also in the student union.

    Welcome to the new Ratio Christi club at Colorado State University!

    This spring semester has been an amazing start to our chapter. We have had over twenty students show up every week. One student even came to the Lord and was Baptised at his church in Fort Collins. Over this summer we are a little less busy as many of our students are not around or off for summer trips. We would love for everyone to keep in touch though, as we will have some events throughout the summer. Go to our group page on facebook here and you can know what we are up to over the summer

    Right now our biggest need is getting our chapter and our chapter director fully funded. If you wish to be a part of Ratio Christi CSU or have questions or want to donate contact Noah at his page here

    Ratio Christi – The Rationality of Christ

    “Ratio Christi” is Latin for “The Rationality of Christ.” Although the biblical worldview is contrary to many secular and mystical ideas prevalent in American culture, it answers many questions about our world, is consistent with reality, and offers hope to all of us.

    “Ratio Christi is a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ….We seek to bring together faith & reason and to establish the intellectual voice of Christ at the university.”

    Excerpts of Ratio Christi’s Goals and Strategies

    “Ratio Christi wants students to be “Fully Equipped and Fully Engaged.” We want to help students hold onto their faith and to also begin to stand up for Christianity when it comes under fire on campus. We desire to train students to be conversational evangelists who will in turn train others to defend and proclaim the Gospel.”

    “Ratio Christi also provides a safe and charitable venue for atheists, agnostics, skeptics, and adherents to any religion to investigate the claims of Christianity, discuss religious beliefs, and seek truth without fearing reprisal. While this is a distinctly Christian organization, any student is able to become a member, learn, debate, and explore the connection of faith and reason.”

    • To develop the critical thinking skills of committed Christians so that they approach major
    issues with a sense of clear reasoning
    • To demolish the false dichotomy of faith and reason
    • To share the gospel in an intellectually stimulating environment
    • To reverse the general trend of secularism within the academy
    • To have Christians worshipping God with their entire being: heart, soul, strength, and mind

    Florida State University chapter meets on a regular basis to demonstrate that our faith is logical and rational, and based on good scientific and historical evidence.

    Since our goal is to provide well documented evidence for all aspects of the Christian faith, come and ASK BIG QUESTIONS about the faith!

    Our focus is to build friendships with students and listen to their faith concerns before we set an agenda. When we set an agenda, we may decide to review and discuss videos, call on outside speakers to present viewpoints, or review and discuss a book, etc. Such options will be discussed at the time, and students will make those decisions!

    If a book is to be used as the basis for discussions, books will be provided for all participants.

    COME CHALLENGE US TO ANSWER YOUR TOUGHEST QUESTIONS!

    Ratio Christi at Houston Baptist University exists to effectively train and groom students, faculty, and other interested persons to identify and share the many valid historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Christ.

    Our long range objective is to equip as many people as practical with intellectual tools and scholarly resources to present, clarify, and defend the truth claims of the Bible that compel all men to recognize and submit to the authority of Jesus Christ for right living in concert with a discernable everpresent, all-knowing, all-powerful Creator revealed by various means in every age through nature, logic, and scripture.

    Ratio Christi is the “reason of Christ” (or the "rationality of Christ").  We are not "just another campus ministry" and we quickly recognized the need for a ministry focused on apologetics and worldview development that would complement existing student ministries. Ratio Christi does not compete with other Christian ministries.  We are a student apologetic organization on the Jacksonville State University campus existing for three main reasons: (1) To strengthen the faith of Christian students and faculty by equipping them to give reasons and evidence for their beliefs, (2) To offer skeptics/agnostics/atheists answers to their objections to the truth claims of Christianity, (3) To host campus wide events featuring Christian thinkers/apologists/scientists/philosophers in lectures/debate/discussions. Our aim is to represent the intellectual viability of the Christian worldview.  Please come back often and plan to join us as we "share why we believe what we believe"!

    Ratio Christi, a Christian apologetics ministry at Lenoir-Rhyne, has as its primary goal to offer Christian students a chance to learn how to think through intellectual issues that challenge the classic, orthodox, Christian message (like that found in The Apostle's Creed). Students thinking through these issues are confronted with such questions as rationality and the existence of God, the exclusivity of the gospel, the problem of evil, the authority of Scripture, human sexuality, faith and works, and the nature of faith (is it blind, absent of knowledge, or is it evidential?). We have hosted speakers on a whole range of topics from abortion, atheism, postmodernism & free speech, women's rights, violence in the OT, and archaeology and the historical reliability of the OT. The Chapter Director for Lenoir-Rhyne University is Chris Van Allsburg.
