Occasionally in our work we find that people sometimes may be confused or have questions about who we are and what we do, so we feel that from time to time it is important that we review what we are about. The following will help explain our guiding principles:
What is Francis Schaeffer Studies?
How do you promote the works of Francis & Edith Schaeffer?
What are your affiliations?
How are you funded?
Why are you doing this?
Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. (Hebrews 13:7 ESV)
Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. (Philippians 3:17 ESV)
Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. Now I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I delivered them to you. (1 Corinthians 11:1-2 ESV)
Where can I find Francis Schaeffer Studies?
"Our desire is to pass the works of Francis and Edith Schaeffer on to the next generation, as well as to make the Schaeffer's thought and teaching more accessible for general inquiry. We provide a free service to the Francis Schaeffer community by donating our time and skills to promote their work and those who follow in their footsteps. We believe this is in accord with Hebrews 13:7, which teaches, 'Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.'" Dan Guinn, Founder of Francis Schaeffer Studies.
Our Vision For The Future Of Francis Schaeffer Studies.org - Our goals for Francis Schaeffer Studies have always been high. We have several primary areas we are continuing to work on as we grow the project.
Database - One of our primary goals from the beginning has been to create an exhaustive web database of Francis and Edith Schaeffer's works.
