There are things in the Christian life that are nonessential for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. For example, views of the end times are hotly debated and vary greatly. One's opinion and beliefs of how everything plays out in the end does not affect a person's eternal destination. We can have diversity in a lot of areas and continue to walk side by side in unity and harmony. At Stafford Crossing, we have three sayings we use to maintain harmony and unity in the midst of diversity: (1) In essential beliefs, we have unity. (2) In nonessential beliefs, we have liberty. (3) In all our beliefs, we show love. However, there are some essentials we must agree on and they are called our basic Bible beliefs.
