Tony Costa Christian Apologetics


"Test everything. Hold on to the good. " 1 Thessalonians 5:21

"I have known Tony Costa for a few years and have always found him to be a friend, as well as a forthright scholar, as indicated in part by his academic credentials. He is also an accomplished apologist. This can be confirmed by his debates and dialogues, which show that he is an able defender of Christianity."

Gary R. Habermas, PhD. Distinguished Research Professor and Chair, Department of Philosophy and Theology, Liberty University

"I have found Tony Costa to be a knowledgeable resource when it comes to the interface of Christianity with the religion of Islam. He combines earnest Christian character with academic keenness."

William Lane Craig, D.Theol., PhD. Research Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology

"In a time of economic crisis, the re-emergence of Islam, the decadent fall of western humanism, the rise of the new atheism and the collapse of justice, in short, in an era of great uncertainty, it is refreshing to be able to recommend the relevant and incisive apologetics ministry of Tony Costa, a man committed to the certitude of the scriptures and the sure and certain hope found in Jesus Christ alone."

Rev. Joe Boot, Apologist, author and pastor; Westminster Chapel, Toronto, Ontario

"It is with great joy that I recommend Pastor Tony Costa's ministry to one and all. He is a fine example of a man of God and a soldier of Christ whose love of people is matched only by his love of the Truth."

Dr. Robert Morey, Director, California Institute of Apologetics, Orange California

"As a professional apologist, I need to network with other apologists, especially in areas that are outside my discipline. I have found Tony to be an excellent resource and a valuable part of my own network."

Kirk Durston, National Director, New Scholars Society

"In an age when people and organizations fail to discern, or worse, fail to act conscionably, Pastor Tony Costa takes a stand on the Scriptures that is both militant and magnificent. As a good soldier of Christ, he doesn't mince his words in calling a spade a spade, separating truth and hype by comparing claims with Scripture. Always gracious, he is not known to use ad hominem on his opponents, but he'd deal rather with the issues, being "prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks [him] to give the reason for [his] hope ... with gentleness and respect" (1 Peter 3:16). I'm honoured to know Pastor Tony as a brother, a friend, and a grateful user of his apologetics website."

Pastor Joseph Ng, English Pastor, Toronto, Ontario

"Tony is articulate and compelling and I have no hesitation or reservation in "turning the pulpit" over to him. I strongly recommend Tony's ministry...He will bless and challenge your church family!"

Rev. Larry Hutchins, Wallaceburg, Ontario

At no time do we need more defenders of the Truth like today. Pastor Tony Costa has stood up to the call, and the Lord has prepared him well - not only academically, but also through his personal life and experience.  The Lord has used Tony mightily as a prophet and a preacher in the past - to tell forth the Truth, to expose and to crush Satan's lies. And I am convinced that He has even greater plans and missions for Tony in the time ahead. ...he has become more than just a pastor to me – he is "a friend that sticks closer than a brother" (Proverbs 18:24)

CY. Yan, Former Deacon, Milliken Chinese Community Church, Toronto, Ontario

"We serve an awesome, gracious and merciful Heavenly Father, Risen King and Sovereign Spirit; three persons but one God. In His providential timing and good will, our Holy Triune God raises up men and ministries to advance Christ's agenda in order to increase His Kingdom and bring Glory to His Precious Name. Over the past 10 years, I have been pleased to see God's hand work in some truly remarkable ways in Canada for the cause of Biblical/Reformed Truth. God has indeed raised up a number of younger men to carry on the tradition and work based on the work of Christ and passed to ones like the Apostle Paul, Augustine, Aquinas, Luther and others who proudly trace their spiritual heritage through the Protestant Reformation. One of these precious Canadian gems is my good friend and fellow worker, Tony Costa.

Tony stands squarely on Reformed/Biblical principles and has valiantly defended the faith in a number of contexts through a variety of venues. He continues to fight the good fight fearlessly challenging all who would seek to challenge the sufficiency of Scripture and the Lordship of Christ. Tony has engaged in moderated debates with Muslims, Mormons, Atheists and others on many of the major university campuses in Canada. Clearly fulfilling his call to apologetics, Tony also provides an invaluable service to local churches by staging key weekend seminars on core Biblical doctrines. Please keep Tony, his family and his ministry in your prayers as he strives for excellence in the cause of the Gospel."

"As a physician who has additional training in education, (a Masters of Education degree), and a considerable amount of postgraduate continuing medical education – I have, over the years, been almost lectured to death. Sometimes I have nearly succumbed from boredom. At other times, I almost suffocated from an excessive mountain of facts. Therefore I am so very pleased to be able to tell you the good news of Tony Costa’s teaching style. Tony is an interesting and refreshing speaker and a gifted presenter. His lectures are clear and accessible. He is a knowledgeable and thoughtful academic; and he is a powerful, attractive and compelling defender of the Gospel. I highly recommend both Tony and his apologetic’s ministry."

Michael Paré, B.Sc., M.Sc., M.Ed., M.D.

Coordinator, The Medical Clinic for Person-Centred Psychotherapy Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychology, Tyndale University College

"Pastor Tony Costa is a godly man who rightly directs his passion in the truth of Jesus Christ. He is loving and gentle to all who genuinely seek the truth, and is also bold and courageous in proclaiming the authenticity of the gospel. He is a passionate speaker and a great defender for the truth, in Jesus Christ."
