Less Common Teachings
These are teachings that are less commonly found among mainstream Christianity, but increasingly found among independent Bible-based organizations. They are true, to the best of our understanding, but we are always learning and have made changes when we realize we have made mistakes. Please send questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage everyone to study from a multitude of biblical sources. We ask that you be patient with us and read the Scriptures we have used to produce these teachings. We will make every effort to be patient with you and respectfully treat you as a brother or sister in Christ, even though we have differences. God simply works with each believer differently.
We realize that some of these teachings may also be taught in Christian cult-like groups—groups that teach that their organization is only “true church” or the best church. There is a reason for that. Cult-like groups want doctrine that distinguishes them from the other groups, and doctrines found in the Bible are actually easier to defend than ones that are not. On the other hand, these cult-like groups often mix in unbiblical doctrines with their biblical ones, especially prophetic interpretations that overstate the importance of their group and its leaders.
Therefore, we encourage everyone—but especially those with the gifts of knowledge, teaching and exhortation—to study the scriptures a doctrine at a time and pray about them, accepting only what God confirms to you. We also realize that many believers have other gifts of service and may simply not be led to study these things extensively. Even so, God's word is good and we all need this verse:
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen (2 Peter 3:18, ESV).
