Curriculum


“The topic of theology and apologetics can be overwhelming. Not so with Prove It!  Stephen Cutchins has taken the complex and made it accessible for anyone investigating Christianity or wanting to make sense of the difficult questions of faith.”

Christians all over the United States and around the world have accessed and used the curriculum below. I keep it here as a free download because I believe God will use it to help people know who they are and defend what they believe. As part of my Doctorate of Ministry work at Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, NC, what you see below was developed to be used in the local church context.

My passion for apologetics started years ago when I was serving as a part-time youth pastor and teaching in the public schools in the Charlotte, NC area. I found that my students had questions about God and the Christian faith that I was not prepared to answer. The importance of being prepared cannot be overstated. The purpose of this curriculum is to introduce the basic concepts, contenders, and criticisms of Christianity and prepare the reader to provide a defense for the hope that is in them (1 Pet. 3:15). “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15 NKJV).

Roe vs. Wade | An Open Letter

JUNE 24th, 2022

An open letter to our church family…

The US Supreme Court issued a landmark decision today overturning Roe vs. Wade in a six-to-three decision after nearly fifty years.

Let’s be clear. We celebrate this decision because we are a life-affirming family of faith. We believe God is the Author of life, and life begins at conception. I want to encourage and lead our church to be life-affirming on every level and in every way. All people, from the unborn to the abortion provider, are loved by God and created in his image.

Let’s be gracious. I want to challenge you to speak the truth with tremendous grace in one-on-one conversations and on all platforms, especially social media. God calls us to be the salt and light to our dark world and do so with humility and grace. We remain committed to being kind, caring, and empathetic to women and families in difficult life situations that cause them to consider abortion.

Let’s be realistic. The overturning of Roe will not end unplanned pregnancy nor the realities of abortion. Abortion will not be overcome by legal measures but by the Holy Spirit’s ongoing work in people’s lives. God works through us to be redemptive in all things and to speak the truth in love.

Let’s be prayerful. Join me in praying for God’s power and protection during these divisive days. Pray for the protection of the unborn and their parents and those who provide support to them: their extended family, friends, churches, and others. Over the next month, I believe our church family should prayerfully consider taking up an offering for a local crisis pregnancy center.

Thank you for your Christ-centered support of life-affirming work as a church family. May the Spirit move powerfully among us for God’s glory and the good of all people.

Pastor Stephen
