Outside of these Core Beliefs, there is room to disagree. There are some doctrines on which two Christians may agree to disagree, even though they are in the same local church and part of the same leadership team.
Examples include: The dating of events in Genesis, order of events associated with the Lord’s return, and degree of separation from worldly practices. When teaching in any such area, it is made clear these beliefs are not essential for salvation or leadership in the church. We may state the case for our position, but will also acknowledge that sincere and intelligent Christians hold different views.
We are committed to nurturing the unity we share as the family of God, and to obeying His command to love another. (Romans 14:1-15:7; 2 Timothy 2:23-24; Titus 3:9)
