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 Big Question is Before Us !

When I opened my Annual Conference booklet,  I was delighted to see new business item 1.  A Query on Biblical authority.  If you are new here, take a look at the title of this blog !

Putting all the pomp & circumstance aside, this IS the ultimate question.  How it is answered will determine the future (if we have one) of the Church of the Brethren.

Jesus said,  “And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.”  Obviously, we are not standing as a denomination, we are crawling toward extinction.

The root of all are current mess of “dialogue & tension” is the ambiguity of the 1979 paper that tossed Biblical Authority out the window.

I offer here a video I made a while back, but it speaks to the issue.
