About Us

TheologyWeb was founded in January 2003 as the personal hobby of Dee Dee Warren, yxboom, and their cohort cirisme (who have since moved on to other endeavors). The site is maintained and owned by Sparko, Raphael, One Bad Pig, and mossrose with a group of volunteers. TheologyWeb does not exist to make a profit or promote a particular denomination or secondary view within Christianity, nor is it under the purview of any denomination or church. We firmly believe that Christianity can hold its own in the marketplace of ideas, and so welcome and encourage interaction with other points of view. Our leadership and technical teams, consisting of laypersons and leaders within various churches and those of other or no religious affiliations, hold each other in mutual accountability for the decisions of the site, whose decisions are final. With that said, Sparko's looking for dissenting volunteers to walk the plank. The owners and moderating staff are all Christians holding to TheologyWeb's Statement of Faith. Other volunteers assisting in technical administration and other areas may be atheists, agnostics, or those of other faiths. In 2013, the site suffered a catastrophic hard drive crash and we lost of all our data, so we had to start fresh at that time (we blame Jaltus). So let's party like it's 2003!

Mission Statement

Our goal is to encourage discussion, promote growth from the knowledge shared amongst participants and have free and open debate in the marketplace of ideas. As a forum this is an open forum, we are dedicated to open discussion from varying points of views and interests, some of which may be considered controversial. While this forum is Christian owned, all are welcome to enter freely into discussion and participate with respect to the forum rules and guidelines. Additionally, while the members of our moderating team hold strong and divergent views on particular issues of Christian doctrine, this forum was not established primarily for the advocating of any particular agenda or secondary belief within Christianity. The moderating staff vary on many points of theology but all are required at a minimum to affirm these things contained within our Statement of Faith. Non-moderating volunteers are not required to hold our Statement of Faith, and we are very happy to have volunteers of various persuasions.

Campus Decorum

While much of the topics and discussion cater more to a mature audience, this is a family forum encouraging the presence of adults and young adults alike. Please keep in mind the presence youth in posting.

Please check back periodically as these rules are updated.

God's Message of Hope and Salvation

Do you know for sure that you have eternal life?? If God were to ask you, “Why should I let you into My Heaven?” What would you say? If you are uncertain or hesitate for a moment to answer that question, this webpage has the best news you could ever hear! The few minutes it will take you to read the following may be the most important time you will ever spend!

Are you aware that God said you can know for sure that you have eternal life and will go to be with Him in Heaven?
I write these things to you… that you may KNOW that you have eternal life.” (1 John 5:13)

We invite you to know for yourself that:

TheologyWeb Staff Information

Our volunteer leadership and technical teams, consisting of laypersons and leaders within various churches and those of other or no religious affiliations, holds each other in mutual accountability for the decisions of the site, whose decisions are final. With that said, please bring back Invader Zim! The moderating staff are all Christians holding to TheologyWeb's Statement of Faith. Other volunteers assisting in technical administration and other areas may be atheists, agnostics, or those of other faiths. Moderating staff is restricted to those holding our Statement of Faith as ultimately the team commits to pray for the members and considers part of our discipline to be to spread the Gospel in love. Other volunteer positions are open to everyone.

Why We Allow Canadians

Canadians are allowed on as a gesture of goodwill along the lines of Proverbs 25:22. Our hope is that, as a result of this unmitigated show of kindness, Canada will begin to feel a collective twinge of regret for Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, and Nickelback, and will reconsider its exports in the future. We encourage you reading this to point this out to any Canadians you may personally know to potentially expedite this process.
