We believe: 1) That God Exists, and that this can be rationally demonstrated. We hold to the claim that God as “the sole, ultimate reality” is far more plausibly true than alternatives offered in other religions or its opposite in atheism. 2) That Jesus Is God, and that the evidence surrounding his life, death and resurrection is clear, obvious, and easy to accept given God’s existence. 3) That the Catholic Church is Jesus’ Church and that this can be known through both Scripture and a study of history: That Christ left us with a visible, hierarchical, and sacramental religion. 4) That the majority of objections to Catholicism are quite irrelevant. In other words, what many people argue over with regards to the Christian religion are often unnecessary blockages---evolution, for example, or whether Genesis was literal history, or scandals or whatever. Instead, think of it this way: Answer in the affirmative the three questions above (does God exist, is Jesus God, and did Christ found the Catholic Church?) and you then have all the grounds you need for becoming a Catholic, and (hopefully) wanting to be. Everything else you can then figure out as a Catholic. This we call the Minimum Effective Apologetic. 5) Not only that Catholicism is true, but that everybody should want Catholicism to be true. No other religion so adequately answers the difficulties and mysteries of life; no other religion offers such meaning, happiness, and hope.
