"CATHOLIC" NOT "ROMAN CATHOLIC"
RCLA’s theology is "catholic" in the sense that it holds to the doctrines of historic Christian orthodoxy such as those taught by the Apostles Creed and the great ecumenical councils of the first millennium of Christian history such as the Councils of Nicea, Chalcedon, Constantinople, among others. This is not to be confused with Roman Catholicism. We have no affiliation with the pope or the church in Rome. The word catholic to us just means universal. We believe in one church made of different gatherings around the globe. These catholic doctrines include such affirmations as the Trinity, the deity of Christ, the atonement of Christ, and other doctrines that are integral to historic Christianity, those doctrines which we would deem “essentials”.
