Theological Triage: 3 Levels of Doctrinal Disagreements

The 2022 biennial State of Theology conducted by Lifeway Research for Ligonier Ministries shows there are areas where even those with evangelical beliefs struggle with various truths of Christian theology. Based on their responses to the four statements which define evangelical beliefs, Americans can be divided into five categories: those with no evangelical beliefs (16%), low evangelical beliefs (10%), moderate evangelical beliefs (21%), high evangelical beliefs (33%), and complete evangelical beliefs (21%). Those with complete evangelical beliefs strongly agree with all four of the following statements:

  1. The Bible is the highest authority for what I believe.
  2. It is very important for me personally to encourage non-Christians to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior.
  3. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross is the only sacrifice that could remove the penalty of my sin.
  4. Only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior receive God’s free gift of eternal salvation.

Using these categories along with statistical analysis of the 31 statements in the State of Theology survey, a pattern appears showing where Americans have commonalities or differences across Christian theological beliefs.

Lead Team Set 3 Goals for 2023.

1. Evangelism - it is our desire to see evangelism increase this year. A good way to measure that is through baptisms. Our goal is 12 baptisms this year. Evangelism Training is on March 12 at 4 pm.

2. Discipleship - it is our desire to see 50% of the worship attendance in intentional discipleship, whether in a group of 3-5 people or 1:1.

3. Community Engagement - it is our desire to see 50% of the worship attendance serving through community engagement initiatives. Look for sign-up opportunities.

About Us

1. We desire to see every person in Crowley and the near regions become disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus. We are a Bible-believing church. Our command from God is to make disciples. However, that looks and feels different than it did when I was a kid! People are farther away from God than ever before. It takes more "touches" and deeper relationships before there can be spiritual conversations.

2. We will love people so they can move forward on life's journey. We have been saying this for a few months now, but want to keep saying it until we live it out everywhere we go! Because people are farther away from God than ever before we must choose to love them with patience, kindness, respect, and conversations - many conversations! We have to respect them as humans before we can discuss other matters. We must be patient with people as they work through the trauma that church and Christians have given over the years.

3. We have established a code of conduct for the FBC family:

  • Accept — We provide a welcoming, non-judgmental and safe space where you can take steps of spiritual growth. We are a group open to new ideas and people. We would love to meet you.
  • Recognition — We find the good in people and love to share it with others. We would love to get to know you.
  • Inspire — We motivate to mobilize people to fulfill their God-given potential. Let us help you reach the heights for which you are designed.
  • Serve — We engage our church and community by service projects, providing help when possible and sharing community resources.
  • Evangelism — We want to build real, trusting, relationships in order to share the gospel of Jesus Christ that leads to life transformation.
