Apostles Doctrine Links
Following the Teaching of the Apostles in the book of Acts (Acts 2:38, Acts 8:12-17, Acts 10:44-48, Acts 19:2-7) and in Romans 6:2-4. This is a site dedicated to the Apostles teaching of the book of Acts.
“What we read in the book of Acts is also for today and that we need to come back to the simple disciple life the first Christians had. The Last Reformation is a reformation about the true gospel and the simple disciple life, but also a reformation of the church.”
They practice water baptism in Jesus name.
Perhaps the single most pivotal point in the apostles’ doctrine is found from the words “God has made him to be Lord and Christ” in Acts 2:36 to Peter’s command to be baptized in the name of Jesus “Christ” in Acts 2:38. The Greek word translated as Christ is “Christos” and refers to one who has been anointed. Peter declares in Acts 10:38 that God has “anointed” Jesus of Nazareth. To the apostles, Jesus is not God, but rather the Christ, God’s anointed one.
True apostolic teaching in the second chapter of Acts, as well as in the balance of Acts, finds not a single instance in which the apostles were teaching the people that Jesus was in fact the Father or God in the flesh. So, let us be truly apostolic! Let us preach to the nations the true and complete apostolic message – not that Jesus is God Almighty – but rather that he is the one who has been made “Lord and Christ” by God. “Jesus” is the Messiah!
Our response to God through Jesus Christ is to repent (have a change of mind) and believe the gospel (Mark 1:15), confess our faith, be baptized in water by immersion in the name of Jesus and receive the spirit of God. The Apostle Peter said:
Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38).
Coming to be “in Christ” makes a person a participant in God’s new covenant (Heb. 13:20, 21). In this covenant, Jesus is our mediator with God (1 Tim. 2:5), our leader – our head (1 Cor. 11:3). In the new covenant, Jesus is our teacher and we will be judged by his words (John 12:48-50).
Man’s response to God through Jesus Christ will be belief in the gospel, confession of faith, baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus, and growth in Christian life (Romans 6:4-6; Acts 2:38).

Founded in 2019, the UCA is a network committed to the truth of the One God. While holding to various beliefs in other areas, UCA members all agree that the God of the Bible is the Father alone, and that Jesus is his human Messiah. The mission of the UCA and its growing membership to promote unitarian theology and to connect like-minded believers across the globe.
The articles on this site are mainly directed toward informed Trinitarian theologians and apologists, or those who wish to be informed, whether they are vocational theologians and apologists or whether they are everday laypeople. While uninformed or laissez-faire “Trinitarians” will find much useful information on these pages, they are not the intended audience. In other words, some of the more austere sounding points I might direct toward “Trinitarians” are not necessarily directed toward you just because you have been taught to believe in the Trinity. I find it very disturbing that academic scholars, theologians, and apologists, know certain facts concerning this issue and do not disclose them honestly to everyday people.

Textural Criticism / Christian History
The standard solution to the Synoptic Problem supposes that Matthew and Luke made independent use not only of Mark but also of another source, now lost, called ‘Q’. But in The Case Against Q Mark Goodacre combines a strong affirmation of Markan Priority with a careful and detailed critique of the Q hypothesis, giving fresh perspectives on the evidence drawn not only from traditional methods but also from contemporary scholarly approaches.
Arguably the greatest literary enigma in history, the Synoptic Problem has fascinated generations of scholars who have puzzled over the agreements, the disagreements, the variations, and the peculiarities of the relationship between the first three of our canonical Gospels. Yet the Synoptic Problem remains inaccessible to students, soon tangled up in its apparent complexities. But now Mark Goodacre offers a way through the maze, with the promise of emergence at the end, explaining in a lively and refreshing style what study of the Synoptic Problem involves, why it is important and how it might be solved. This is a readable, balanced and up-to-date guide, ideal for undergraduate students and the general reader.
