The Bible to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God. We hold to the Biblically confirmed position of sola scriptura, that the Bible alone determines what we embrace in faith and practice, and is the supreme and final court by which we judge all teachings (Acts 17:11).

Embrace The Truth International exists to offer Muslims, Jews, cult members and skeptics the value of embracing the Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ no matter the cost, through the demonstration of sound apologetics, personal testimony, and the expression of Christ-like love, gentleness and respect for tradition, belief, and the individual.
Abdu is the President and co-founder of Embrace the Truth, an apologetics ministry dedicated to engaging non-Christians with the credibility of the Gospel in ways that touch the heart and the mind and equipping Christians to do the same.
Abdu spent most of his life as a proud Muslim. After a 9-year investigation into the historical and philosophical underpinnings of the major world religions, Abdu discovered that only the evidence for the historic Christian faith can withstand the toughest challenges.
Abdu has spoken in numerous venues both in the United States and internationally, including churches, conferences, and universities. He has been a featured guest on radio talk shows across the United States and on numerous national and international television programs, including the Janet Mefferd Show, Newswatch, Stand to Reason with Greg Koukl, CrossExamined with Dr. Frank Turek, The Bob Dutko Show, and SRN News. Abdu hosts Embrace the Truth with Abdu Murray, a radio segment on WLQV in Detroit.
Abdu’s first book, Apocalypse Later - Why the Gospel of Peace Must Trump the Politics of Prophecy in the Middle East, is published by Kregel Publications. His second book, Grand Central Question – Answering the Critical Concerns of the Major Worldviews is published by InterVarsity Press.
In 1999, Abdu earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1995. He is a member of the Evangelical Philosophical Society, the Evangelical Theological Society. Abdu is an adjunct speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and is the Visiting Professor of Christian Thought and Apologetics at Oklahoma Wesleyan University’s Josh McDowell Institute.
Abdu lives in the Detroit, Michigan area with his wife and their three children.
Born and raised in a nominally religious family, Mickey Badalamenti was driven by a desire to know the truth. “Why am I here?” “Is there a God – or gods?” and “Can truth really be known?” were everyday questions that eventually pushed him to seek and find the answer in light of the evidence. The journey led him through the different religious systems and philosophies of the world, ranging from the Christianity to Islam to Eastern thought and religious systems, until one day it was interrupted by the discovery of a unique individual – the Lord Jesus Christ, God in the Flesh, whose resurrection revealed him to be the one and only Truth and Way to Life Everlasting. Since that time, Mickey has been committed to demonstrating that in Jesus – and Jesus alone – is found life’s author, life’s purpose, and life’s cohesive truth, and to equipping Christians in their knowledge of the true Son of God and of the counterfeits in the world that would serve to undermine His Lordship in their lives. He serves as associate Pastor of Discipleship at Rockpointe Community Church in Sterling Heights, MI and resides in Shelby Township, MI with his wife Kate and four children.
