We don't claim to have all the answers, but we do claim to have a good conscience about the answers we do have. Our aim is not QUANTITY - how much? - but QUALITY - what kind? In a day of numerical madness and user-friendly churches, we strive for truth. Although we welcome numerical growth, it is not essential. Growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord is essential, however, and truth is the foundation for spiritual growth. Our faith is not a form of RELATIVISM - "true only for us." Truth is independent of majority decisions or cultural perspectives. Our faith is not SUBJECTIVE - "true only because we feel it." Feelings come and feelings go, and feelings are deceiving. Truth is needed to ground feelings. Our faith is not a form of PRAGMATISM - "true because it works." Rather, it works because it is true. That we have objective truth means truth is true even if nobody believes it; and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. Take a moment to browse through our site, you may find a few nuggets of truth.....
"In an era that prizes tolerance, affirms diversity, and bends over backwards not to appear judgmental, serious claims to truth sound much like an obscenity - often prompting embarrassed looks, rising blood pressures, and even open hostility. Clearly a claim to truth marks one off as culturally gauche, politically most incorrect, or on the side of the fanatics and bomb throwers. The Christian faith, however, unashamedly claims to be objectively true - not relatively, not subjectively, not pragmatically, but objectively true." - Os Guinness
