Doctrine

Around 1627 AD a German theologian, Peter Meiderlin (under the pseudonym, Rupertus Meldenious), made an often quoted statement on the spirit which should guide theological matters within the church. His statement, often attributed to Augustine and John Wesley among others was: “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.”  

 

It is these extremely biblical principles of unity, freedom, and love which we deeply desire to be the hallmarks of theological/doctrinal issues at Emmaus Church.  It is in that Spirit that we heartily affirm the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed, which have served to unite Christ-followers and communicate the core truths of orthodox Christianity for generations. The Emmaus Church statement of faith can also be seen below.
