Ministry Description
The Christian Research Institute's primary commitment is to furthering the proclamation and defense of the historic gospel of Jesus Christ, and to facilitating His people's growth in sound doctrine and spiritual discernment. To that end, CRI broadcasts "The Bible Answer Man," a one hour daily radio talk show and publishes the Christian Research Journal, a quarterly magazine. CRI's areas of research specialization include (1) non-Christian religions, sects, and cults, (2) the world of the occult, and (3) issues of contemporary theological and apologetical concern (e.g., aberrant Christian teachings and practices).

When you become a Bible Answer Man Support Team Member, you commit to support the Bible Answer Man broadcast and Christian Research Institute with your ongoing support of $15 or more monthly ($180 yearly or more), laying the foundation for all of the Christian Research Institute's ministries. In appreciation of your support, you will receive a personalized copy of The Complete Bible Answer Book.
