We aim to create an informal environment where people are free to wrestle together through life’s questions and challenges.

why dialoog

Why Dialogue?

We believe that the church needs a healthy culture of conversation. Dialoog Evenings provide opportunities for people to voice their questions and opinions. Our hope is that through Dialoog we can move closer to each other and the truth.

We host debates, lectures and workshops at universities and churches across the country. Some of the speakers we’ve hosted include Prof. John Lennox, William Lane Craig, Mike Licona and Michael Ramsden.

Cell Groups

The way we connect with one another and get a little deeper on the spiritual side is through weekly cell group meetings. They are hosted on weeknights for two hours at people’s houses and consist of Bible study, group discussion and prayer.

Dialogue Statement of Faith

 

The Trinity

We believe God is unity in Trinity and Trinity in unity. He exists as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and  He is a being of unimaginably wonderful power, goodness, justice and love. Psalm 118:1, Psalm 145:1–9, Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14

 

Creation

We believe the world exists because God created it, that it belongs to Him and therefore we should cherish and care for it. Genesis 1:1, Psalm 24:1–2, Isaiah 40:25–26, 1 Corinthians 10:26

 

People

We believe all human beings have dignity because they are created by God in His own image, and of great worth because they are valued by God beyond our ability to measure. Genesis 1:27, 31, Psalm 8:3–6, John 3:16, Romans 5:8

 

Sin

We believe this world has pain and suffering because human beings have fallen into sin, and are therefore estranged from God, from each other, from themselves, and from creation. Genesis 3:17, Romans 3:23, Colossians 1:21, Titus 3:3

 

God’s Redemptive Plan

We believe God does not intend for sin and suffering to get the last word, but is at work to redeem and reconcile what He has made with Himself. Isaiah 11:6–9, Colossians 1:21–23, Revelation 21:1–5

 

Jesus

We believe God has eternally expressed himself uniquely in His Son Jesus, who lived, taught, died, and rose again for our sakes. Jesus is our Lord, teacher, savior, and friend, and  reigns forever with the Father and the Holy Spirit. John 14:6–7, Acts 2:32, 1 Corinthians 15:3–4, Ephesians 2:13, Colossians 1:15–20, Philippians 2:5–11, 1 Timothy 2:5–6

 

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Spirit of God is now available to us meaning that we can be closer to God than to the air we breathe. It is through the Spirit that we are united with Jesus Christ. John 14:26, Acts 1:8, Romans 8:26, Galatians 3:14, Ephesians 1:13–14

 

The Bible

We believe God has revealed the truth about Himself in the scriptures of the Old and New Testament, which are our unique and authoritative guides in faith and action as we follow Jesus. Matthew 4:4, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Timothy 3:16–17

 

The Church

We believe the Church is the community through which God wants to bring love, healing, and growth to the human race, to which He invites everyone who is willing to follow Jesus to join. Matthew 18:18–20, John 1:12–13, Acts 1:8, Galatians 3:28, 1 Peter 2:9

 

Eternity

We live in hope because one day Jesus will return, love and justice will prevail, and God will set the world right. Matthew 24:30–31, Luke 12:40, Romans 8:37–39, Revelation 21:1–5

 

As a community of Jesus followers,  Dialogue tries to practice the Way of Jesus in our time and place, to bring spiritual, social, and cultural renewal.
