So, why the Faith Line Protestant? What is that, exactly?
You may have read our description of the “faith line” found on the page of the same name. If so, you may be catching on to what “Faith Line Protestant” means.
On the one hand, it’s a joke; it’s a bit of wordplay on the term “Mainline Protestant“– the common name used to refer to certain historical Protestant denominations in the United States such as the United Methodist Church, the Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the American Baptist Churches, and others.
On the other hand, the name Faith Line Protestant stands as a recognition of the “faith line,” a choice to take the Biblical notion of being an ambassador of Jesus Christ as a charge to engage non-Christians in authentic, honest relationships.
The term is self-descriptive. We do not intend to exclude or discourage Roman Catholics or anyone else from the conversation. We simply see the moniker “Faith Line Protestant” as a fitting, creative way to associate the authors of this site with a cause in which we believe.
