If God Is Real

Mount St. Helens

We believe that, if God is real, He must be the most important and relevant reality in the universe. Thus, the truth about God is worth pursuing.

The members of the If God Is Real online community are not uniform in belief. What we share in common are these principles and purposes:

  • We want the truth, whatever it is.
  • We ask questions.
  • We examine our beliefs with honesty and humility.
  • We follow the evidence. We strive to establish beliefs that are built on evidence (facts, reason, and experience).
  • We aim to clearly and compellingly articulate what we believe and why we believe it.
  • We remain open to new evidence.
  • We never stop seeking the truth.

Inquisitive minds, kind people, and all points of view are welcome. We practice classical tolerance — elitism toward ideas and egalitarianism toward persons. We expect disagreement. We insist on respect. We are dedicated to providing a safe environment for exchanging views. You will be challenged and stretched. You will be respected and valued. You will be heard. We care about what you think, but most of all we care about you.
