The overall purpose of Brethren for Biblical Authority is to provide a networking opportunity for like-minded leaders & churches within the Church of the Brethren. The Theological viewpoint for "B4BA" can be seen on the Faith Statement & supporters tab above.

A B4BA goal is to move beyond the distractions & struggles of the denomination and THRIVE, in spite of what's happening in the COB.

The Place for Grace

A rather elaborate idea plan is emerging from the progressive wing of the COB. It's called, "Feast of Love." -

The goal is to create, " a new district within the Church of the Brethren." Thus, this movement would mean the creation of a denomination within the denomination.

I propose something that is much simpler and Biblical. Take a good look at Acts 15. When Paul and Barnabas came to the point where they could no longer effectively partner in ministry, they simply parted.

If we continue "living with the tension" that is dead-weight on all our churches, we are going to lose what little life we have left in the COB. So, what is a win-win situation for all parties? A graceful release. If congregations find themselves outside of the basic orthodoxy of the COB, why continue to fight? Wouldn't it be better to just let them begin a new work? As far as the "elephant in the living room," let them keep their buildings.
