An integrated faith is a faith that is at home in every aspect of human life. It is not confined to a Sunday morning timeslot, nor is it confined to a church building. It is not restricted to “spiritual” activities like bible study, prayer, and preaching, but also includes our work, our leisure, and our relationships. It includes business and the arts as well as technology and the hard sciences. It transforms not just individuals, but also cultures. An integrated faith is a faith for all of life.

An integrated faith rests on the firm conviction that Jesus is both maker and master of all of creation. No created thing is fully understood until it is understood as an object of his crafting; no artifact of human culture is well-formed until it is formed to serve His purposes; no human soul is at rest until it finds its rest in Him.

An integrated faith emerges from an ongoing conversation between theology and the best of human learning. The mind of God is revealed in two books—the book of nature and the book of Scripture. The Christian who hopes to know the mind of God must read and study both books, and then integrate the knowledge from these two sources into a single holistic view of the world and a comprehensive vision for human culture.

An integrated faith is the calling of every disciple of Christ. It is not merely the task of the university or the calling of a scholar.

Every person is appointed a calling which engages the world for the love of neighbor and the glory of God. Theology must not just be believed, it must be lived.

The task of an integrated faith is not complete until Christ is honored as King in every sphere of human endeavor and every aspect of the created order. It is to this task that this website is dedicated.
