Prove It


“This helpful guide hits home with the Millennial generation.”

George Barna and Jimmy Meyers

“Prove It by Stephen Cutchins is one of the best written, best organized, and most timely books to fill the need to provide a defense for our faith. Never has the evangelical church needed books like this more than today. Every pastor, every parent, every Sunday School teacher, and every youth worker needs this book. I highly recommend it.”

Dr. Norman Geisler

Prove it. This is the cry of a generation that is both skeptical of truth and hostile toward Christianity. Too many people are turning away from Christianity, and God, because they have questions and challenges that go unanswered. Because of this, Christianity is viewed by many as an insanity that is only for the weak-minded and misguided. The purpose of this book 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). The importance of this book, and others like it, cannot be overstated from both a practical and an academic sense.

The local church has a serious responsibility to defend the basic concepts of the Christian faith but cannot keep up with the attacks without basic tools and training that will equip Christians to love people enough to answer their hard questions. Unless the church is equipped to deal with the intellectual mind that is rejecting the existence of God, the objective nature of truth, and the validity of miracles, a generation will be lost to the lies and confusion of false teaching. This book will enhance the readers’ potential in the areas of apologetics (pre-evangelism) and evangelism. Prove It is now in its second edition and also has an accompanying small group curriculum that can be used by churches.


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING


“When the first edition of Prove It was published in 2015, we gave away a few thousand copies as our gift to everyone on Easter Sunday. Our people loved it. I then invited the author, my friend, Dr. Stephen Cutchins, to teach it on 7 consecutive Sunday nights. The room was packed every night! This book is exactly what today’s church members are looking for. It offers practical help in defending the faith in a skeptical culture.”

“Dr. Cutchins has done the Lord’s Church a great service by writing Prove It, which provides Christians at all levels the knowledge and understanding they need to share their Christian faith confidently and persuasively with seekers and skeptics alike. It is rare to find a book that is both tremendously informative and accessible for both the newest of believers and the most mature Christians alike. Prove It is just such a book. Every Christian will benefit greatly from reading and re-reading Prove It. We are proud to have Dr. Cutchins as an SES alumnus.”

Dr. Richard Land, President
Southern Evangelical Seminary | Charlotte, NC


Prove It is a foundational text for the apologetics courses at Fruitland Baptist Bible College. This excellent book is not only a wonderful resource for ministerial students, it is a great book for all Christians who desire to defend the faith. It is my hope that those who are skeptical about the claims of Christianity will also read this compelling book and place saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Getting Prove It into the hands of those who are not yet believers can be a powerful evangelism tool!”

Dr. David B. Horton, President
Fruitland Baptist Bible College | Hendersonville, NC

Prove it will help you understand and explain your faith. It is a unique book that can be used for small group study or as a stand alone read. I highly recommend it.”  

Dr. Ken Hemphill, Special Assistant to the President
North Greenville University | Tigerville, SC

“If you are looking for a clear and easy to understand book on apologetics (how to defend your Christian faith), you should read Prove It. Stephen Cutchins has explained simply what we need to know, with many excellent illustrations. Check out the table of contents.”

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
