"... a community associated with Jesus' name."

"A range of people---those attracted to the Christian proposition, those who clearly affirm it, and those with even more robust affirmations of the unique revelation of God through Jesus Christ---join together in a community associated with Jesus' name. They seek to live in ways consistent with his life and teaching, even while doubts may remain unresolved and the exact implications of his teachings only gradually become clear. Out of the evolving practices of worship, study, and discipleship, some degree of shared belief may well emerge, even if complete convergence of belief is unlikely."
