"We accept any Christian who devoutly, sincerely, thoughtfully, seriously, and prayerfully regards
themselves to be Christian. If they honestly believe that they follow Jesus of Nazareth's teachings
as they understand them to be."
There are many ways of classifying the over 34,000 separate Christian groups in the world that consider
themselves to be Christian from the Amish to The Way.
Some believe that the Bible is a wide-ranging human document.
- It was written by very human and fallible people who were not directly inspired by God.
- The motivation of the authors was to promote the beliefs of their religious groups.
- The first five books of the Bible were written by four unknown authors or groups of authors
over a period of centuries and later redacted (edited) by a fifth person or group.
- The Bible records the authors' evolution in spiritual and religious belief over a period of about 1,000 years.
- They incorporated a lot of material from nearby Pagan religions, like the book of Genesis' creation stories
and Noah's flood, events that never happened.
- The Bible contains a great deal of folklore, religious propaganda, and myth. Stories of the great heroes of the
ancient Hebrews (Adam, Abraham, Joseph, etc) are myths and involve characters who never existed.
- Some of its content is profoundly immoral by today's religious and secular criteria, and must be ignored.
- The Bible calls for justice and decent treatment of all persons. These themes are vitally important today.
We believe the Bible is the Word of God, written by inspired revelation, in its original writings. .
