Progressive Christianity is an open, intelligent and collaborate approach to the Christian tradition and the life and teachings of Jesus that create pathways into an authentic and relevant religious experience.
- Do you find more grace in the search for meaning than in absolute certainty, in the questions rather than in the answers?
- Do you have religious interests and longings but cannot accept the beliefs and dogmas you associate with Christianity?
- Are you repelled by claims that Christianity is the “only way”?
- Do you find solace, meaning, or connection to the teachings and the path of Jesus of Nazareth?
Organized religion does not have to be irrelevant, ineffectual, or repressive…
ProgressiveChristianity.org provides guiding ideas, networking opportunities, and resources for progressive churches, organizations, small groups, and individuals with connections to Christianity.
We promote an understanding of Christian practice and teaching that leads to a greater concern for the way people treat each other than for the way people express their beliefs, the acceptance of all people, and a respect for other religious traditions.
We affirm the variety and depth of human experience and the richness of each persons’ search for meaning, and we encourage the use of sound scholarship, critical inquiry, and all intellectual powers to understand the presence of God in human life.
We are opposed to any exclusive dogma that limits the search for truth and free inquiry, and we encourage work that eases the pain, suffering and degradation inherent in many of the structures of society, as well as work that keeps central to the Christian life fair, open, peaceful, and loving treatment of all human beings.
