Living Faithfully —
What does that mean exactly? Well, for us it means . . .
Faith, if it is based on the truth, should make sense of our world!
- If what the Bible reveals about God, this world and our lives is actually true, it should be borne out and validated in our human experience.
- Faith does not mean having to “turn off” one’s brain. Faith is not the opposite of reason, nor does it exist in the absence of evidence. On the contrary, we believe that an abiding faith requires both.
- Faith is not old-fashioned and out of touch in this modern age, nor is it anti-science — after all, if there really is a God, science is His, too. Rather, faith explains the complexities of our world and our innate human strengths, frailties and yearnings better than any competing set of beliefs and is as relevant for us today as it has ever been.
