The Phoenix Affirmations: A New Vision for the Future of Christianity

The Phoenix Affirmations, named for the town in which they were created and the mythological bird adopted by ancient Christians as a symbol of resurrection, offers disillusioned and spiritually homeless Christians, and others, a sense of hope and a tolerant, joyful, and compassionate message.

Built on the three great loves that the Bible reveals, love of God, love of neighbor, and love of self, these twelve affirmations refelct commitments to environmental stewardship, social justice, and artistic expressions as well as openness to other faiths.

Transcending theological and cultural wars, inclusive and generous in spirit and practice, these principles allow believers and seekers alike to affirm their Christian faith in a fresh way.
