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 exists to: (1) Engage non-Christians with the credibility of the Gospel in ways that touch the heart and the mind and (2) Equip Christians to do the same.

Abdu has appeared as a guest on numerous radio and televisions programs all over the world.

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.
