Modern Christianity (re: 21st century), like most other endeavors one might be confronted with in life, can, by some less-than-scrupulous people, be merely "frosting on the cake" and the "cake" is often something other than Christianity. The Disciple Ship holds that Christianity is supported most purely by the Holy Bible. The simplicity of this statement is by design. One might want to be wary of those who will tout the Bible as their source but follow such a claim with a flurry of caveats intended to qualify that choice. The ministries and church-bodies represented on this page follow our simple yet profound credo: "if it is not supportable by Scripture we do not subscribe."
You can have the utmost confidence in the ministries, agencies, and church-bodies described on this page. With this in mind, we urge you to follow the links to their websites and find out what they have to offer.
