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
"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.....
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."
