The International Biblical Apologetics Association (IBAA) is a non-denominational apologetics ministry registered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the United States. The mission of IBAA is to teach the biblical truth and defend it against false teaching. IBAA seeks to train evangelists and apologists who would bring forth the Gospel to Jewish seekers and pseudo-Christian cults. We stand up against antisemitism, advocate for Israel, and promote spiritual unity among believers without compromising the biblical faith. IBAA operates in English, Hebrew, and Russian. We invite you to partner with us in prayer and financial support (Philippians 1:27).
We believe that the Bible is a living Word of God and should be studied, taught, and applied in our lives. The foundational IBAA project is the International Apologetics Declaration which sets forth sound biblical doctrine. It has been translated into 18 languages and signed by hundreds of pastors and lay believers from all over the world - check it out here and consider signing and sharing it with others.
We desire to spark revival among Jewish people as they see the joy and anointing of the Spirit among those who have received "Yeshua" (Jesus) as Israel's Messiah, who suffered and died in our place as prophesied by Isaiah (see Isaiah 52:13-53:12).
We conduct theological conferences and debates and offer online biblical courses to those who want to dig deeper into God’s Word. Students have a unique opportunity to study the Bible in its original languages.
