The COR Documents

The Foundation Documents

42 Articles of the Essentials of a Christian Worldview

The 42 Articles on Historic Doctrine are based on the inerrant Bible and were first written by our theologians as the theological basis on which all COR's 17 Worldview Documents were to stand. The 42 Articles distill 2,000 years of the Church’s theology in all historic denominations and offer the church a “generic statement of faith” as a guardrail against heresies and error.

A Manifesto for the Christian Church

The Manifesto for the Christian Church was developed after the 17 Worldview Documents to state where God wants the Church to stand and what actions he wants to be taken to accomplish the Great Commission at this point in history. The Manifesto was signed on July 4, 1986 in a Nehemiah-type Solemn Assembly on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial by the Steering Committee of COR and 400 delegates representing the greater Body of Christ.

Articles of Affirmation and Denial on the Kingdom of God

The Kingdom of God document was developed from 1988 to 1991 by the COR theologians to state the Biblical and historical view of the Kingdom of God. 

Additional information about the 25 Articles on the Kingdom of God is provided in Dr. Grimstead's brief commentary.

Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy

The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy was ratified by the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy in 1978. This watershed document is a modern, historical statement on the view of the Bible held by the Christian Church for 2,000 years, as well as by Jesus and all the biblical authors.  

Additional information about the ICBI and the Chicago Statement is provided in Dr. Grimstead's article on how the ICBI came into existence.

Rebuilding Civilization of the Bible

Book by Dr. Jay Grimstead and Eugene Clingman

God has done it in the past and He will do it again...

Revival and reformation are coming! 

For reformation to come there must be a hearty return to God's Word, and by that Word to orthodoxy and orthopraxy. The 24
documents in this book represent 37 years of the
combined work of hundreds of Christian theologians, pastors and lay leaders from a broad range of denominations. These 24 documents were written to help return us to Biblical Christianity. They are a plumb line
for restoring the Church to God's Word and God's favor!

Read also of the history of how the documents were
formed and of the call for a global church council
scheduled for October 2017.
