As the board continues to grow, it is becoming a place for fans of many different things, and even a place for all people, not just Christians, to discuss their hobbies on a Christian organized message board.

begotten, not made,

through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven;
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and became truly human.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
Who with the Father and the Son
is worshiped and glorified,
who has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic* and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism
for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Chad's original tweaked by ColtsFan76 tweaked by MacGyver wrote:army4One.com was created as a Christian message board for GI Joe fans to discuss their faith, interests and current topics. As the board continues to grow, it is becoming a place for fans of many different hobbies, and even a place for all people, not just Christians, to share their thoughts on a Christian organized message board. People come here for encouragement, real-ness, and to freely discuss their beliefs without flaming and drama. People here know that even if they don't post much, they can feel revived for God's battle after reading. army4One.com is a place where the saved, seekers, skeptics, and cynics can come for safe, honest, and thoughtful discussion of the Christian faith. The goal of this site is for users to spur one another on to excellence in faith, thought, word, and life.

As the board continues to grow we have become a site for people from all walks of life. No matter what your beliefs, hobbies, or personal interests may be, you're welcome to talk here. All are invited to discuss God, G.I. Joes, books, sports, the news, politics, video games, movies, and any other subject that crosses your mind.

As Christians on this forum, we follow the general Apostle's creed:

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy christian Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
Amen.


Any other takers?

I might remove the part of Joe fans right up front. New members would be concerned with what we are not what we have been. That might put non joe fans off before the read the full thing. Maybe even just adding a Sentence similiar to this. "We welcome all those who wish to talk about God, voice prayer concerns, or chat on subjects like Movies, Politics, Video Games and Auction figures." Before the joe thing, so that it feels inclusive first before they found out how it started.
