Christians Standing Together

The Non-Negotiable Truths of the Gospel Proclaimed by Christians of all Traditions.

Members of the Maranatha Community, from different church backgrounds and with much Theological training and knowledge between them, have produced this very significant document Christians Standing Together which outlines the non-negotiable truths of the Gospel proclaimed by Christians of all traditions, referring to scripture,  and outlines twelve prime truths based on the Constantinople-Nicene Creed.

Printed copies are available from the Maranatha Community bookshop for 50p

The doctrines described in Christians Standing Together are further expanded in Our Christian Faith published here in November 2009.

Report from Weekend in Plymouth

The Plans & Purposes of God in my Life. 12-14 June, Plymouth. Click Here
The weekend in Plymouth was entitled "The plans and purposes of God for my life". It quickly became apparent that this theme centred on our intimate relationship with God as our Father (Abba) and that the plans and purposes of God were all about us coming into a greater understanding of how much we are loved and how good God our Father is. The weekend was led in a gentle and thoughtful manner, leaving ample space for each of us to listen and encounter God for ourselves. In the time of sharing which followed the periods of silence, it was very evident that God had been at work at a deep level in the hearts of many individuals. We were reminded too, that fruit grows only as we remain in that deep place of union with the Lord.
We found it to be a rich time of fellowship with the Lord and with one another.

Free Speech Petition 5th July deadline

The deadline to sign this petition against Clause 61 of the Coroners and Justice Bill (currently before Parliament) which will remove the free speech clause protecting those who express views on sexual ethics, is 5th July. If passed this clause would open the door for Christians to be investigated and interrogated by the police, prosecuted in the courts and even imprisoned simply for presenting a Christian view point on sexual ethics.
