In the legacy of C. S. Lewis, we develop wholehearted disciples of Jesus Christ who will articulate, defend, share, and live their faith in personal and public life.
How We Define Discipleship
A disciple is someone who has believed the message of the gospel, responded to the call of God in repentant faith, been baptized and, through the power of the Holy Spirit, is seeking to understand and obey all that Jesus taught his first disciples. (Matt 28:19)
History of the Institute
Founded in 1976 by Dr. James Houston and James R. Hiskey, the Institute has focused on providing leading teachers who can address important issues of the day from the perspective of Biblical orthodoxy and also on discipling of individuals in small groups.
Why the name C.S. Lewis Institute?
The name of C.S. Lewis was chosen because of his focus on core essentials of the faith that reach across denominational boundaries. He was also an outstanding example of a lay person who came to Christ and lived out his faith in a secular calling. As a major figure in 20th century Christianity, he has been able to communicate his faith in a profound way.
