Is & Isn’t

Our protest is not an angry protest, but a protest of love.  It is for the love of God’s people that we are called to stand against the worldliness that renders them impotent.

Quitting Christianity welcomes the destitute and despised, the downcast and the downtrodden.  We welcome those with no place to go and who will follow Christ without reservation because they have nothing to lose.  We welcome those who have been devastated by sin and seek a freedom from their chains.

Make no mistake, this is not a movement or a revolution, but a breaking.  It is only through this brokenness that we may be reborn and rebuilt into a people ready to carry God’s glory.

Quitting Christianity is not counter-culture, but is decidedly anti-culture.  We are not satisfied with any current, past or future culture of the world, and are not intending to build one more to replace it.  We are committed to a radical following of Christ, even when His ways disagree with our notions and His leadings challenge us to follow Him into the uncomfortable and unknown.

We recognize we are wholly dependent upon God’s grace, but radically committed to righteousness.   We recognize our inability to be righteous before a holy God outside the scope of the blood of Christ, yet we are untiringly committed to seeking His grace to live holy lives.  At the same time we reject the righteousness of man and forced obedience to the doctrines of man as the commandments of God.

Quitting Christianity recognizes God’s command to care for the poor, stand for the oppressed and love the unlovable.  Yet we recognize a social program alone will not ultimately solve the world’s problems.  A social program is not the calling of the church, but rather to preach the gospel.  It is only in carrying out our ultimate goal of evangelism that our care for the poor takes on its proper meaning and purpose.
