ICR’s School of Biblical Apologetics

The Institute for Creation Research’s School of Biblical Apologetics (SOBA) was launched over 12 years ago. ICR’s SOBA programs provide biblical creation-based apologetics for seeking, finding, and sharing God’s truth. SOBA teaches biblical education and apologetics, blending over 50 years of biblical creation-affirming research, education, and outreach.

SOBA programs prioritize the Lord Jesus Christ as the preeminent Creator God, who is worthy of our worship, with educational programs emphasizing commitment to God’s truth for personal and ministry applications. SOBA’s Bible-honoring faculty is committed to ICR’s core tenets regarding the creation account, Adam’s original sin in Eden, the global Flood, the Genesis dominion mandate, the Great Commission, and debunking “science falsely so called” (1 Timothy 6:20, KJV).

As its name suggests, SOBA promotes biblical apologetics, a phrase chosen to emphasize the real source of authoritatively relevant and knowable truth—the Holy Scriptures.

What: SOBA programs include the in-depth Creationist Worldview certificate program; Origins Matters Short Course certificates; undergraduate and graduate degree programs (e.g., Bachelor of Christian Education, Master of Christian Education); ACSI-credentialed Back to Genesis series lectures for CEU credits; and occasional off-campus educational programs (e.g., seminary lecture series, pastors’ conference messages, homeschool events, school chapel messages, etc.).

When: SOBA is asynchronous, so its online programs are usable 24/7. Whether you learn best at midnight or in the middle of the day, this online learning program will fit your busy lifestyle.

Who: The SOBA faculty includes credentialed ICR personnel, plus subject-specific adjunct faculty.

Why: SOBA’s purpose is found in Revelation 4:11: “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.”

How: SOBA’s practice is found in Ezra 7:10: “For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel.”
