For twenty yearsour Lamplighter team has eagerly anticipated the creation of Lamplighter Theatre Audio Drama. We have prayed and planned while waiting for the Lord’s perfect timing. The time has now come. Many significant factors have led us to believe that God is paving the way for the launching of Lamplighter Theatre. Recently Mark Hamby, founder and president of Lamplighter, was interviewed on Family Life Today radio broadcast with Dennis Rainey, Revive Our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss, and Moody Bible Network’s Prime Time America with Greg Wheatley. During these interviews Mark discussed the redemptive influence Lamplighter stories have had throughout our country and around the world.

Each gripping story, written over a century ago, is character-building and biblically based, filled with dynamic role models and life-giving truths. The response from the radio listening audience was so overwhelming that we realized that a large segment of the Christian population is starving for something deeper—something that will reach their hearts, cultivate hope, and bring redemption to their broken lives. Something that will take them into the very presence of God.

The Christian Research Institute exists to provide Christians worldwide with carefully researched information and well-reasoned answers that encourage them in their faith and equip them to intelligently represent it to people influenced by ideas and teachings that assault or undermine orthodox, biblical Christianity. In carrying out this mission, CRI's strategy is expressed by the acronym E-Q-U-I-P:

The "E" in EQUIP represents the word essentials. CRI is committed to the maxim: "In essentials unity, in nonessentials liberty, and in all things charity."

The "Q" in the acronym EQUIP represents the word questions. In addition to focusing on essentials, CRI answers people's questions regarding cults, culture, and Christianity.

The "U" in the word EQUIP represents the word user-friendly. As much as possible, CRI is committed to taking complex issues and making them understandable and accessible to the lay Christian.

This brings us to the "I" in EQUIP, which stands for integrity. Recall Paul's admonition: "Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers."

Finally, the "P" in the acronym EQUIP represents the word para-church. CRI is deeply committed to the local church as the God-ordained vehicle for equipping, evangelism, and education.
