The Ezra Institute for Contemporary Christianity is an evangelical Christian organization committed to the training and equipping of Christians in the areas of Christian apologetics, missiology, and the cultural mandate. Our goal is to assist Christians in the bringing of all things, in every area of life and thought, into captivity to Christ.

2014 Freedom Symposium
FREEDOM in CANADA with or without CHRISTIANITY?
This year’s symposium explores the question: Can Canada remain free without Christianity? The humanistic and utopian architects of our “progressive" Canadian culture assume that our social order will remain stable and flourish without its foundation - Christian foundation. However, experts predict Canada cannot remain a “free” country if it jettisons the very foundation of its freedom. We’ve assembled an excellent panel of experts who will explore the issue from various disciplines: apologetic and philosophical, legal and grassroots activism.
Speakers will be:
Rev. Dr. Joseph Boot - Founder of the Ezra Institute for Contemporary Christianity and Senior Pastor with Westminster Chapel, Toronto, ON
Matt Barber - Founder and editor-in-chief of barbwire.com. He is an author, columnist and cultural analyst and an attorney.
Gary McHale - Founder and Senior Director of CANACE and the author of “Victory In The No-Go Zone”
At this year’s symposium Freedom Press International will be releasing Rev. Dr. Joseph J. Boot’s magnum opus The Mission of God: A Manifesto of Hope.
About the Book: Culture is the public manifestation of religion. Today, Western culture is facing an epochal turning point. Having largely abandoned the triune God and His Word in private and public life, the edifice of our civilization is crumbling. The humanistic and utopian architects of our "progressive" order erroneously assumed that our social order could remain stable and flourish without its foundation. The coming decades will accelerate our rapid decadent demise into pagan religion, economic decline and social decay, unless a renewal of Christian vitality is seen in the church by a recovery of biblical faith and truth for every area of life. The Mission of God is a clarion call for Christians and God's church to awaken and recover a full-orbed gospel and comprehensive faith that recognizes and applies the salvation-victory and lordship of Jesus Christ to all creation; from the family, to education, evangelism, law, church, state and every other sphere. Boot shows that the only hope for our time is the reign of Jesus Christ and His kingdom, arguing that, like a mustard seed, this kingdom grows as believers declare the good news and assert the crown rights of Christ the king, in the power and grace of the Holy Spirit.
