The Christians’ North Star: Essential Christian Doctrine

Our purpose is to make you so familiar with genuine Christian doctrine that when counterfeits loom on the horizon, you know it instantaneously. The importance of essential Christian doctrine can hardly be overstated. These are the very doctrines that form the line of demarcation between the kingdom of Christ and the kingdom of the cults.

 

Essential Christian doctrine is the North Star by which the very course of Christianity is set. As the North Star is an unchanging reference point, a point by which sailors used to safely guide their ships, so essential Christian doctrine has safely guided the church through the doctrinal storms that have sought to sink it. Essential Christian doctrine is the foundation, never forget, on which the Gospel of Jesus Christ rests, from His deity to the certainty that He will appear a second time to judge the living and the dead.

 

Essential Christian doctrine is foundational to the gospel. All other religions either compromise, or confuse, and even contradict, essential Christian doctrine. Consider Islam. Muslim teachers dogmatically denounce the doctrine of Christ’s unique deity, they call it the unforgivable sin of shirk. They readily affirm that Jesus was sinless, but they adamantly deny His sacrifice on the cross, and His subsequent resurrection as the only hope of salvation.

 

Now to internalize what you believe for essential Christian doctrine, I have organized the main and plain things of Scripture around the memorable Hankronym D-O-C-T-R-I-N-E. And to master why you believe what you believe, I’ve organized the supporting evidence into easy to assimilate bullet points.
