Modern Church is the main advocate for liberal theology in the British churches.
By ‘liberal theology’ we mean that religious beliefs can and should develop in the light of new insights.
Divine revelation has not come to an end. God invites us to believe in ways appropriate to 21st Century.
New ideas should be judged on their merits. They may be true today even if they have not been officially accepted by church leaders in the past.
