Reasons To Believe (RTB) Chapters exist to connect the ministry of RTB with communities around the world, uplifting and equipping fellow believers for productive dialogue that invites doubters and skeptics to follow Jesus Christ.
As part of our vision for increasing the ministry’s evangelistic impact, Chapters play a vital role in introducing RTB and its resources to local communities. They provide a forum in which these resources can enhance the spiritual growth and personal outreach of every member.

Meetings with Purpose
The goal for chapters is to create a community that will encourage and equip participants. Here are a few ideas:
- study, as a group, RTB’s unique faith-and-science apologetics resources
- discuss new ways to introduce nonbelievers to reasons for faith in Jesus Christ as Creator and Savior
- invite and welcome new participants
