This Charis Commitment to Common Identity is a summary of the biblical convictions, mutual commitments, and common practices of the Charis Fellowship (Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches). It is not intended to be a complete expression of what we believe and practice, nor is it intended to be the final expression of those beliefs and practices. Rather, it is a current expression of our ongoing quest to apply the unchanging truth of God’s Word to the constantly changing realities and needs of our world.
This brochure is available to Charis Fellowship congregations at no charge (except for shipping and handling). It is designed to:
- encourage the next generation to understand, identify, and engage together with us;
- train new disciples to grow and serve among us;
- orient those disciples who may wish to join us;
- strengthen the understanding and convictions of our leaders and members;
- help us relate appropriately to those with whom we form partnerships; and
- discern which churches or groups of churches should form a part of our global movement.
