Our Mission

Welcome to the GoodTheology project: a digital parish for God’s discerning children and a mission of ministry to seek, sow, and spread God’s kingdom of love here on Earth. We believe that Christians have a faithful obligation to carry forward the words we profess in the Lord’s Prayer—that we cannot wait for someone else to do later what God has already called us to do here and now—usher in the Kingdom of Heaven, here on Earth.

The GoodTheology project believes this is carried out by the application and repetition of not only large acts, but more importantly, through small acts. Our sustained and conscious implementation of small acts become habitual behaviors that grow to be central parts of the lives we lead. In turn, the lives we lead become expansions of God’s kingdom here on Earth.

Discipleship is not told, it is practiced. And the path to a truly better world—to God’s Kingdom of Heaven here on Earth—cannot be achieved through words alone. It takes habitual enactment and continued pursuit of seeking, sowing, and spreading small acts of faith. One splash of water on a rock may seem trivial to some, but the world’s landscapes have forever been and will continue to be changed by thousands upon thousands of splashes, each wearing down even the most hardened materials over hundreds of years.

The GoodTheology project does not believe in the necessity of singular small acts. We believe in the power and importance of habitual ones over time. The repeated small acts that become an integral part of our lives directly impact the condition of everyone we meet.

We volunteer to walk with you on that journey of seeking, sowing, and spreading those small acts, starting here and now.

The GoodTheology project welcomes all people to embark on this venture. Whether you are firmly planted in your faith, spiritually hungry, or wary of the Church, our digital parish is a safe space.
