What denomination is Rewild Church?
Rewild Church is transdenominational. While founder and lead shepherd Vas Avramidis is Eastern Orthodox, the Rewild Church ministry is not affiliated with any one denomination; Rewild Church is welcoming to all Christian traditions.
Is Rewild Church an actual church?
The church is a living organism, not an organization. Rewild Church is a fellowship of Christians who worship together and study together. The church is the body of Christ and can’t be confined to any one building or organization.
What if I am not a Christian, can I still attend Rewild Church gatherings?
Everyone is welcome to attend our Rewild Church Gatherings, believers, skeptics, and all those in between. All we ask is that you be sincere in your attendance and remain respectful of our beliefs and practices. If you have questions, we will do our best to answer those at the appropriate time.
Some of Rewild Church teaches sounds a bit new age?
Please trust us, or at least give us a chance to layout our theology. Our beliefs are actually much closer to those of the early church, especially the eastern branch of Christianity. We have spent a great deal of time meditating on the scriptures, the nature of God, creation, and mankind – contemplating the purpose and end of all living beings. We have also read the writings of the early church extensively. All we can say is that if you are skeptical, that is good, come and see, if you don’t like what you see, then you are free to depart from us.
We are a Christ centered fellowship that believes in the inerrency and inspiration of Holy Scripture in its original language, as understood through the culture that produced and received it. Our understanding of theology stems from the Bible itself as interpreted by the living and active early church and the ecumenical councils.
Thus, we believe that God is a Trinity of undivided, co-equal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus is the incarnation of God, fully human and fully divine. He took on the entirety of human nature, body, mind, and soul, yet remained without sin, and thus redeemed us from death and sin. As the early church taught, that which is not assumed is not saved; thus Jesus had to take upon the entirety of the human nature, while retaining His full Divinity.
Christ’s death and Resurrection freed us from the ancestral curse, and brought us wholeness. The life and death of Jesus also granted us adoption into the Kingdom of God as co-heirs with Christ. It also granted us true fellowship with one another and with all of creation. This adoption and fellowship do not await some future date, but have their beginning now; we are already in paradise, if only we have eyes to see.
Can I bring my children to Rewild Church gatherings?
Yes, but you will be responsible for their safety and well being, as well as their behavior. Only you know how mature your children are and if they can handle gatherings like these.
What is the Doctrine of Rewild Church?
We adhere to the Doctrine as spelled out by the Nicene Creed:
We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages; God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God; begotten, not made, of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made.
Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heavens, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and became man; and was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and on the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.
And in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the age to come. Amen.
Join us as we strive to create a more peaceful world as we seek to meet the Creator, through the creation. Strive with us to develop an authentic Trinitarian communion, as we honor our God, demonstrate love to one another, and show compassion upon all of nature.
