The Christian Challenge Statement of Faith

Our statement of faith summarizes our beliefs as a group. Anyone familiar with historic Christian doctrine will find that these statements fall in the center of evangelical theology (“evangelical” means theology derived from the evangel, or the Gospel; in other words, it’s biblical theology rather than speculative theology or theology rooted in tradition). We try not to be dogmatic about matters on which Bible-based believers have held different views. It’s common for non-essentials to drive a wedge between people. We want our essential beliefs to be centered on Christ and His message as found in and supported by the clearest passages of Scripture.

In Essential Beliefs - We Have Unity

"There is one Body and one Spirit…there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all…" (Ephesians 4:4-6)

In Non-Essential Beliefs - We Have Liberty

"Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters…" (Romans 14:1)

"Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls…" (Romans 14:4)

"So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God." (Romans 14:22)

In All Our Beliefs - We Show Charity

"If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains -but have no love, I amount to nothing at all." (I Corinthians 13:2)
