Methodist Church in Malaysia. Sarawak Chinese Annual Conference
This project seeks to train the Chinese Christians and Iban Christians of the Bahasa Malaysia Ministry congregation of Gloria Methodist Church (GMC) in Apologetics. Chapter 1 presents the background and ministry context of SCAC of this project. Chapter 2 provides biblical and theological foundations of the truth of the resurrection, an exegesis of three passages of the Scriptures (1 Cor 15; Acts 2:14-41; Acts 17:16-34) to show that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is central to the apostle’s apologetic presentations. Chapter 3 provides historical knowledge of the resurrection and presents the five Patristic arguments to show that Jesus Christ's resurrection is the center of the early Church Fathers’ apologetic works. Chapter 4 describes the implementation of the project, the development and teaching of the apologetics curriculum, and the analysis of the pre- and post-survey. Chapter 5 evaluates the project’s efficacy based on the completion of the specified goals. Ultimately, this project seeks to train the Chinese Christians and Iban Christians of the BMM congregations of GMC for effective defense of the Christian faith and the proclamation of the gospel among Muslims, respectively.
