What is
Christian Universalism?

"Christian Universalism", in its simple and proper theological sense, is the doctrine of universal reconciliation, universal salvation; or in other words, of the final holiness and happiness of all mankind, to be effected by the grace of God, through the ministry of his Son, Jesus Christ.


The Pursuing Love of God

"God will seek us -- how long? Until he finds us. And when he's found the last little shriveling rebellious soul and has depopulated hell, then death will be swallowed up in victory, and Christ will turn over all things to the Father that he may be all and in all. Then every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Clarence Jordan - (founder of Koinonia Community)


Articles of Faith (1790)

    Of the Holy Scriptures. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to contain a revelation of the perfections and will of God, and the rule of faith and practice.
    Of the Supreme Being. We believe in one God, infinite in all his perfections, and that these perfections are all modifications of infinite, adorable, incomprehensible, and unchangeable love.
    Of the Mediator. We believe that there is one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, in whom dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, who by giving himself a ransom for all, hath redeemed them to God by his blood; and who, by the merit of his death, and the efficacy of his spirit, will finally restore the whole human race to happiness.
    Of the Holy Ghost. We believe in the Holy Ghost, whose office is to make known to sinners the truth of this salvation, through the medium of the Holy Scriptures, and to reconcile the hearts of the children of men to God, and thereby to dispose them to genuine holiness.
    Of Good Works. We believe in the obligation of the moral law as to the rule of life; and we hold, that the love of God manifested to man in a redeemer, is the best means of producing obedience to that law, and promoting a holy, active, and useful life.

Welcome to the Wider Universalist Fellowship website! This is a place for Christian Universalists and for those who wish to learn more about Christian Universalism.

The Bible is the creed of the Christian Universalist. In this respect, the Christian Universalist Faith is the same as most other Christians differing mainly in the one distinguishing doctrine of Christian Universalism which is concerned with the extent of God's love and the final results of His salvation. A brief definition of this one distinguishing doctrine is shown on the left.

For those of the Christian Universalist Faith, the Wider Universalist Fellowship provides resources, for ministers, leaders, and teachers interested in developing outreach programs, cell, study groups, mission groups, etc. whether in an isolated area or in a local congregation.

We also have a discusion group for those of the Christian Universalist Faith to share and fellowship with other Christian Universalists. It is also a place for those who are interested in the Christian Universalist Faith to learn more about it. Everyone is welcome to fellowship here and we only ask that you:

  1. Respect each person's difference in religious beliefs, including the differences in doctrine, style and personality.

  2. Only speak in edifying ways in regards to others.

We invite you to subscribe to the Wider Universalist discussion group and fellowship with others in the Wider Universalist environment.

Profession of Faith (1803)

We believe, that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments contain a revelation of the character of God, and of the duty, interest, and final destination of mankind.
    We believe there is one God, whose nature is love; revealed in one Lord Jesus Christ, by one Holy Spirit of Grace, who will finally restore the whole family of mankind to holiness and happiness.
    We believe, that holiness and true happiness are inseparably connected; and that believers ought to maintain order, and practice good works, for these things are good and profitable unto men.


Principles of Faith (1899)

1.  The Universal Fatherhood
      of God
2.  The Spiritual authority and
      leadership of His Son
      Jesus Christ
3.  The Trustworthiness of the
      Bible as containing a
      revelation from God
4.  The certainty of just
      retribution for sin
5.  The final harmony of all
      souls with God


Proposed Profession of 1887

I believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments contain a revelation from God to mankind.
    I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; in Jesus Christ, His Son, who is the Revealer of God and the Savior of the world; and in His Holy Spirit, the Comforter, through which all disciples of Christ are united in one spiritual body.
    I believe in the necessity of personal regeneration; in the forgiveness of sins; in the certainty of retribution; in the immortality of the human soul; and in the final holiness and happiness of all mankind.
    I believe that the opportunities, obligations and rewards of religion are in their nature eternal, and of such immediate urgency that I ought to strive earnestly for present salvation, by repenting of my sins and diligently using the means of grace which, in His mercy, God has provided for me.

All God's creation is

For the creation was subjected to vanity, not of its own will, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of decay into the liberty of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. Not only so, but ourselves also, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for adoption, the redemption of our body.... But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord, the Spirit.
