Our core mission is “unity of the knowledge of God” (Ephesians 4:13), the greatest treasure (Colossians 2:2-3). We want to be the most accurate place in understanding God’s Word. There is a lot of disunity and pride among theologians (Ephesians 4:14; Proverbs 18:2). Those who fervently seek the truth (Proverbs 2:4-5) and prefer to be corrected (Proverbs 12:15) will unify as “one mind” (Philippians 1:27; 2:2) for “answering problems” God wants us to (Daniel 5:12). For those who fill out our interview and adhere to our guidelines, we will create a “Wikipedia for the Bible.”
Core values are biblical principles that all leaders must adhere to. They are a specialized set of beliefs that will best help us meet our goals:
- Unity as One Mind–Go out of your way to seek resolutions for any minor disagreement (I Corinthians 1:10; Philippians 1:27). Do not judge the weak (Romans 14:1,4), but with the strong, never allow a disagreement (Philippians 2:2). Go out of your way to tell the strong all of your and their sins and seek correction (Hebrews 3:13; Proverbs 12:15).
- Consistent Communication–Unity is based in love (Colossians 3:14), and it’s difficult to love someone without consistently being there for them (Hebrews 13:5). The best way to unify in love is to commit to a routine schedule to talk with the person, and be consistent despite any issues, as Jesus said, “I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20).
- Question your Obedience–Instead of being content that God accepts your flaws through His grace (I Peter 2:16), constantly question your obedience to the Lord (Philippians 2:12; II Corinthians 13:5) and desire perfection (Matthew 5:48).
- Desire the Highest Purpose–Live life as if you were trying to be the best Christian to ever exist (I Corinthians 9:24), believing that the Creator wants to empower you (Philippians 4:13; Psalms 118:6), assuming you stay humble (Matthew 23:12).
Statement of Faith
- Sinful Nature: We are sinners (Titus 3:3).
- Love of God the Father: God the Father is good, kind, and loving (Titus 3:4).
- Jesus is God: Jesus is a man and also is God, Lord, and Savior (Titus 3:4,6). This is known as the hypostatic nature, that Jesus was fully God and fully man.
- Repentance through Mercy: He causes us to repent of our sins by His mercy, not our works (Titus 3:5).
- Regeneration by the Spirit: The saving happens through regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit (Titus 3:5).
- Holy Spirit is God: The Holy Spirit is also God (Titus 3:5-6) because the saving happens through the Spirit, and the Savior is Jesus.
- Death, Burial, and Resurrection: Implicit in “pouring” (Titus 3:6) is how Paul also defines the Gospel of salvation (I Corinthians 15:1-2): Jesus died for our sins, was buried, was resurrected, and proved His resurrection (I Corinthians 15:3-6).
- Eternal Life: We are justified so we can have eternal life (Titus 3:7).
- Justified by Grace for Works: Justification happens only through God’s grace proven by works (Titus 3:7-8).
What type of problems do you answer?
Using the Bible, we will answer any philosophical, theological, or psychological problem. We don’t answer problems based on facts external to the Bible, such as science or history, because we believe logic (see Logos in John 1:1) can better solve major problems than pointing to what others think. While facts are important, the Bible is infinitely more true (John 17:17). We also do not answer personal problems but will help you learn how to find a great, local community.
What is your denomination?
We will never prioritize or start a denomination. Although denominations are necessary as everyone is free to seek God in their own way (Romans 14:3), we believe that a Wiki of the Bible should vigorously seek theological unity (I Corinthians 1:10). The founder personally holds beliefs from the Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Catholics, and Orthodox. Although our theology is primarily influenced by Evangelical Protestantism, we believe every group that believes Jesus is God has something valuable to share. We believe a Christian is anyone who subscribes to biblically-defined core doctrine (Titus 3:3-8; I Corinthians 15:1-6), especially in the divinity of Jesus Christ (I John 4:2-3).
