DougthumbHello, my name is Doug Ankele, I’m the creator and administrator of “Christian Resource Cafe.” I’m a single Dad with two great kids, well, not kids anymore. I reside in the suburbs just outside of Chicago, IL. I’ve been a follower of Jesus Christ for over 15 years, and love reading about, talking about, and growing closer to the Lord.

My mission is to provide great resources to help equip Christians grow in knowledge and faith according to God’s word, to fulfill the great commission, to provide content that is edifying, encouraging, to be better stewards of God’s money, and to provide an overall Christian worldview. Your first and best resource is the Lord Jesus Christ and his word. If you have a suggestion for content or site submission, please email me with the contact form…Thank you for stopping by, and I pray that you become part of our community.

Our Statement of Faith

* We believe that all men are sinners and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). * We believe that salvation from sin, death, and God’s wrath is the comforting free gift of God, given by grace through a living faith (Ephesians 2:8-9, James 2:14-17) in Jesus Christ (John 14:6). * We believe that the Bible is the final authority on faith and life—that it is a magnificent and unique document, truly inspired by God through human writers, and is without error in the original manuscripts (2 Timothy 3:16-17). * We believe that the Bible has answers for today’s problems—that every man, woman, or child will benefit by getting to know Christ (Hebrews 13:8). * We believe that good works are a natural result of an authentic saving faith (2 Corinthians 9:8, James 2:26). Thus being a Christian leads one to be a blessing to society (Mark 12:31), to influence it (Matthew 5:13-16), to be enthusiastic (Romans 12:11), and to bring others the good news of the gospel (Matthew 28:19-20). * We believe that the Christian faith is not mere blind faith but faith in evidence (Acts 1:3), which should be explained lovingly to others (1 Peter 3:15).
