Mission, Vision and Values

MISSION

Whosoever exists to publish resources, primarily in the form of curated content, for those who seek a deeper understanding of the truly loving God, whose unconditional love is experienced as boundless grace.

VISION

We aim to present a true diversity of voices that allows for the perspectives of those of various faiths, traditions, creeds, cultures, abilities, sexualities, ethnicities, socio-economic levels, geographies and gender expressions. Whosoever doesn’t limit itself solely to Christian perspectives on God.

We aim to do this in a way that finds questions more interesting than answers, that values individual prayer and discernment over interpersonal argument, and that values real-world interaction over digital discourse.

We give ourselves permission to walk away from negativity, particularly online – and as necessary, to remove that negativity if it crosses the line into abuse and/or isn’t done in the spirit of true mutual understanding.

VALUES

A core value of Whosoever is that the individual has been granted by God the free will to seek God. Because of that, nothing is more important than an individual’s own relationship with God, which is where God does God’s best work. This is as opposed to having that relationship defined, controlled, mediated or disrupted by any person or institution.

Whosoever rejects all forms of fear-, guilt- or shame-based Christianity. We support the view that human beings start from a place of original blessing, not original sin.

Taking the example of the radically inclusive Jesus, whosoever supports an infinitely expansive view of God that values inclusion over exclusion.

Whosoever defines spiritual violence as anything that has the effect of disrupting an individual’s direct relationship with God.
