What We Believe

As a Brethren in Christ church body, we affirm an understanding of scriptural interpretation that recognizes:

  1. The inspiration and illumination of the Holy Spirit
  2. The centrality of Christ in divine revelation
  3. The New Testament as interpreter of the Old Testament
  4. The scriptural focus on piety and obedience
  5. The essential value of community consensus in the interpretive process
 
The Brethren in Christ U.S. Manual of Doctrine and Government more fully explains our understanding of biblical faith and the Christian life.  For more information on articles of faith and doctrine, click here.
