The Bahnsen Institute exists to promote the work and thought of the late Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen.

Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen.

Dr. Bahnsen is chiefly noted for his seminal contribution to the field of apologetics, but he was also a thinker of considerable breadth. He integrated historic Reformed theology, traditional covenant theology, and Christian philosophy into a comprehensive world-and-life view.

Accordingly, the Bahnsen Institute seeks to equip the saints to “take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ” and to promote a God-centered approach to epistemology, metaphysics, and ethics in thought, word, and deed.


The Bahnsen Institute provides access to Dr. Bahnsen’s abundant audio resources. It also seeks to make written resources more readily available to individuals and institutions by packaging them in a convenient format to meet the needs of various target audiences.

We will assist other organizations in their work of education and discipleship. Therefore, the Bahnsen Institute will transcribe and develop curricula to accompany Dr. Bahnsen’s audio resources so that they may be used by schools, universities, seminaries, and churches as courses of study in multiple languages.

It is also a chief priority to help students and seminarians to develop a vision for the comprehensive Lordship of Christ and equip them to instruct others.

Finally, in order to equip every believer to be ready to give an answer for the hope that is within him and to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, we aim to make Dr. Bahnsen’s lectures, sermons, books, and papers more widely known and easily accessible to all the saints so they may defend and assert the claims of Christ against all opposition.
