The Christian Nation

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9

The Christian Nation’s VISION

Our Vision is to inspire an active brotherhood of believers that will transcend denominational barriers and proactively stand against further disintegration of the Western Church, through Christ’s love and moral conduct.

The Mission of the Christian Nation is to reignite the ancient flame of Christian brotherhood, in the knowledge that all baptized Christians are members of a Nation that transcends our current world order. The Christian Church is the mystical body of Christ, and its members are mystically integrated with each other, while serving as the Temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 Peter 2:4-5) We are called by Scripture to live separate from the world, by living whole Christian lives, rather than espousing the compartmentalization that is so prevalent in secular society. Since we are friends of God, we are enemies of the world. (James 4:4) Our mission as a society is to invade the world with the Gospel.

We believe that “immigration without integration prepares a nation for disintegration.”

The Bible teaches that Christians are a IMG_0136nation in exile (John. 17:14; 1Peter 1:1; 2:11; James 1:1; Phil. 3:20; et. al.) The Christian Church is a “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God…” (1 Peter 2:9) As an immigrant Nation, individual Christians should seek to proactively cross denominational boundaries, and spiritually integrate with one another as a society within a society, in fulfillment of our Master’s prayer on the night he was betrayed.

“…that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you are sent me.” John 17:21 NIV

We seek to rekindle within the Church, a sense of being an immigrant nation living in a fallen world. We seek to practice in community the love of Christ, which is the most important factor in our witness to the world. (John 13:35) As members of the body of Christ, we also seek to live accountable to each other and respect the spiritual leadership over us, in the knowledge that they have been placed by God in order to serve as our examples and as points of unity as our teachers. (Heb. 13:17; 1Thes. 5:12-13; 1Pet. 5: 2-3)

Romans 12:10 NIV- Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

We believe, teach and confess the historic creeds of the Church, while honoring the writings of the Apostolic Fathers and Reformers. We believe in respecting all non-essential doctrines and opinions, as long as they find a witness in the teachings of the Ancient Church. (For example, the subscription to the praxis of baptismal immersion by Tertullian.)

The Christian Nation does not honor the administrative reasons for divisions among the thousands of fragmented, Christian denominations. Neither do we honor any reason beyond heresy or immorality, as an excuse to keep baptized Christians from the Lord’s Table.
