The gospel is central.
The Apostles Creed is foundational.
The Anabaptist Core Convictions are formational.
These convictions have helped form a framework for how we believe the gospel, belong to one another, and bless the world. When we discovered the convictions outlined by the Anabaptist Network in the UK, we felt as though we were looking into a mirror. These statements articulate the kind of theological distinctions that have grown from our life of following Jesus together for his kingdom in our neighborhoods.
We are a non-denominational church, governed by our own leadership and do not formally belong to any Christian denomination or organization — the Anabaptist Network included. We find their convictions helpful in identifying the kind of thinking, teaching, and practice you'll find at The Neighborhood Church.
For more information about these convictions, click here or listen to a sermon series that explores each conviction with regard to Anabaptist history, our theology and practice. For a great introduction into these convictions and Anabaptism, we recommend The Naked Anabaptist by Stuart Murray.
