    Who We Are

What We Believe

Three Streams–Our Theological Heritage

It is often said of the Brethren In Christ that we are formed out of the confluence of three theological streams: Anabaptism, Wesleyanism, and Pietism.  Evangelicalism has influenced our fellowship over the past fifty years, as well.  When you come to worship with us, you will take part in a service that looks much like other Evangelical churches.  Yet, these emphases make us distinct and will serve to give you a better understanding of who we are at the core.

Anabaptism as a movement grew out of the events surrounding the Protestant Reformation; yet, was in some ways distinct from the Protestant churches.  Our emphases upon community and wholehearted discipleship come from our Anabaptist influences.

Wesleyanism as a movement grew out of the teaching of John Wesley.  This theology has shaped our understanding of Sanctification, or the process by which we are transformed to be like Christ.  We believe that God, by his Spirit, transforms and empowers us so that we can live in victory over the power of sin.

Pietism as a movement developed in Central Europe in the 17th century and has touched several traditions, including ours.  We received, from Pietism, our emphasis upon knowing Christ personally and having a relationship with him.

Our Doctrine

For a fuller explanation of our doctrine, be sure to take a look at the Brethren In Christ’s Articles of Faith and Doctrine.  Also be sure to look at our statement of Core Values.

Our Strategy

    And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
    Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV
