What's In a Name?

UR·BAN \ ˈƏR-BƏN \

The word “urban” is from the Latin meaning pertaining to the city as in city life and culture. The word Logia pronounced [loh-gee-uh] is the English transliteration of the Greek λόγια, which means sayings or collection of sayings. Logia is used four times in the New Testament (Acts 7:38; Romans 3:2; Hebrews 5:12; 1 Peter 4:11) and sometimes carries the meaning of divine communication.

LO·GIA \ ΛΌΓΙΑ \

Logia is from the same root as the word Logos, a word John used to refer to the Word or Christ. Just as early Christians believed that Christ was Divine, they applied the same word to his sayings also. Other forms of Logia include words like eulogia (praise a person) apologia (defense) theologia (reason about God) and homologia (confess).

Why UrbanLogia

Over the last decade, an alarming number of professing Christians have left the church due to their exposure to teaching that causes them to question the very reliability of Scripture, the authenticity of Christianity, and even the historicity of Jesus the Messiah. Many of these people have simply not found Christianity sufficient to address their immediate needs and concerns, and as a result have turned to various other religions and cults which vie for the minds of Christians, particularly young Urbanites and Millennials. These other religions and cults present their teachings as the spiritual solution for the vacuum left by the church’s failure to equip believers apologetically with biblical and historical answers to the questions and issues troubling them.

At UrbanLogia Ministries, we seek to equip pastors, teachers, parents, and students, with detailed knowledge about the various theologies, ideologies, and worldviews that oppose the Christian faith. This knowledge is necessary to combat erroneous teaching which is not rooted in biblical truth or historical accuracy, and as a result is misleading, spiritually and socially dangerous, as well as heretical.

Our Mission

UrbanLogia is an Urban Apologetics and Urban Theological Ministry that specializes in dispelling myths and untruths about Christianity, equipping believers to intelligently articulate the basis of their faith, and helping them become conversant with those holding to the various theologies, ideologies and worldviews that oppose the Christian faith.

Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Each Person of the Trinity is distinct and fully God, each possessing the attributes of God.
  • We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that man is inherently sinful and that the salvation of lost and sinful man was accomplished through the sacrificial death of the Lord Jesus Christ and is received by grace through faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, produce good works, i.e. to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ
  • We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ, and in the bodily resurrection of the dead. We believe that God will judge all mankind by Jesus Christ; that He will reward the righteous with eternal life in heaven, and that He will banish the unrighteous to everlasting punishment in hell.
  • We believe that the Church Universal is the Body of Christ, the fellowship of all believers, and that its members have been called out from the world to come under the dominion and authority of Christ, its head. We believe that a local church is a fellowship of Christians, a part of the Body of Christ, voluntarily banded together for worship, nurture, and service.
