Welcome to the hub of Courageous Theology.

We’re glad you stumbled your way onto our page and we hope you find our posts and casts enlightening, edifying, and generally beneficial.

Our goal here at Courageous Theology is to help you bridge the gap between orthodoxy and orthopraxy. In other, not so seminarian terms, we will be bridging the gap between how correct theology ultimately needs to manifest into correct action.

Inaction is not an option for us as believers in Christ. We are to not only follow Christ, but we are to take others along for the ride. It is in this action that we begin to live out the commands found in Matthew 28:18-20:

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that i have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Jesus isn’t just giving us a command here, but a promise too: He will be with us as we carry out His mission. This should lead us to be as bold as lions in sharing our faith, but with gentleness and compassion.

What we believe about Christ matters, not just for us, but for the sake of others as well.

Orthodoxy is a necessity, and orthopraxy is a must. Faith without works is dead. Not because works lends itself to salvation but, because we believe, our faith will ultimately lead to good works. This statement, found in James, is a point of evidence of faith, not the securing of salvation.

Bored yet? I certainly hope not. If you have read to this point and your eyes have yet to glaze over, and a steady stream of drool hasn’t begun oozing from the corner of your mouth — good, you’re in the right place!

So, join us on this mind-bending trek into theology and its practical implications.

All I can hope is that by reading our blog every Monday, listening to the podcast each Wednesday, and viewing the supplemental resources each Friday, that you’ll grow in a love of the Gospel. Past that, hopefully you’re at least entertained?

Until next Monday, Auf Wiedersehen.
