Your donations enable us to continue transforming progressive Christian leadership and to create resources that nurture our faith journeys. If everyone reading this right now gives just $40, we will reach our goal of $70,000 by the end of the year. Some can give more, some less. We invite you to give as you are able.

Our actions, leadership, resources, curricula, and liturgies have been easing the pain, suffering and degradation inherent in society today. For 20 years has offered FREE resources (everything from music to liturgy) while growing an international network of people like you searching for and building community. We do all of this with a focus on spiritual practice, sacred community and positive social transformation.

The 8 Points of Progressive Christianity


By calling ourselves progressive Christians, we mean we are Christians who…


1.  Believe that following the path and teachings of Jesus can lead to an awareness and experience of the Sacred and the Oneness and Unity of all life;


2.  Affirm that the teachings of Jesus provide but one of many ways to experience the Sacredness and Oneness of life, and that we can draw from diverse sources of wisdom in our spiritual journey;


3.  Seek community that is inclusive of ALL people, including but not limited to:

  • Conventional Christians and questioning skeptics,

  • Believers and agnostics,

  • Women and men,

  • Those of all sexual orientations and gender identities,

  • Those of all classes and abilities;


4.  Know that the way we behave towards one another is the fullest expression of what we believe;


5.  Find grace in the search for understanding and believe there is more value in questioning than in absolutes;


6.  Strive for peace and justice among all people;


7.  Strive to protect and restore the integrity of our Earth;


8.  Commit to a path of life-long learning, compassion, and selfless love.
