Basileia is an expression of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church that has been given a unique kingdomcultural charism, lifestyle and mission.
Our logo portrays Basileia as a city with four horizontal gateways that aim us to the north, south, east and west in the quest to cultivate the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Ours is a vision of comprehensive redemption, which includes every sphere of thought and life, all domains of society and culture, and even restoration for the natural order.
Basileia is also a “gate of heaven,” a vertical gateway that connects heaven and earth to advance the redemption of mankind and his restoration to friendship with God.
Because the Church, the city of God, is central to this great cosmic drama, Basileia is not merely a religious institution in someone else's society, but a kingdomcultural alternative, that is, a holy city demonstrating and presenting this comprehensive salvation as an alternative to the Fallen World System.
As the Church, Basileia is uniquely constituted to believe this vision of God and embody His purposes for the world as a kingdomcultural movement actively doing the real work of building the holy city of God.
We are a global community of Basileia Communities and Vocational Societies. Communities are composed of Fellowships united around an Abbey. Vocational Societies are composed of Chapters membered to a Fellowship.
We are a convergence movement. We seek to live in the radical center defined by the three main theological traditions of the historical Church: the liturgical and sacramental, the Evangelical and Reformed, and the Orthodox and charismatic.
We affirm that the Church, as the pillar and ground of the truth (1 Tim. 3:15), is a court of truth, not a source of truth. Therefore, Basileia recognizes that the creeds and councils of the Church serve as secondary, derivative and subordinate authorities.
Basileia is a member of Communio Christiana, a global communion of thousands of churches in the continents of Africa (in the countries of Benin, Cameroon, Congo, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia), Asia (in the country of India) Europe (in the countries of Ireland, Spain and Wales), North America (among First Nations and in the countries of Canada and the USA) and South America (in the countries of Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela).
