Themelios means “foundation” as defined in Ephesians 1:20. The church is being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets (Scripture).
Who We Are
Themelios is an organization devoted to the teaching of Scripture. These pages are dedicated to the end that Scripture may be better understood and applied by, for, and to the believer in Christ.
This site is for all who have a commitment to Scripture as the word of God to sinful men. Our desire is that all believers, who are at varying stages of their Christian walk will find something useful in these pages. If there is anything that is not clear, there is a Q&A page where questions can be posted and Themelios can respond.
What we believe?
Our statement of beliefs are here. What we believe are founded on two fundamental realities: (1) the absolute existence of the triune God (Father, Son, and Spirit) as revealed in Scripture and, that (2) God has spoken through Scripture alone and none other. Although we recognize the traditional catechisms, creeds, and confessions of the Church (including but not limited to the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Heidelberg Catechism, the Westminster catechisms, the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Canons of Dordt, the Belgic Confession, the 1689 Baptist Confession, and the Thirty-nine Articles), these are considered secondary standards and are not normative for faith.
Themelios also believes in the fundamental importance of the original languages (the Old Testament in Hebrew and the New Testament in Greek) as the final arbiter in the correctness of a reading of Scripture in any language other than the original. In this regard, the Septuagint (commonly known as the LXX), the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament is not an original language and should be treated as such unless Scripture itself quotes the LXX as Scripture.
