Frequently Asked Questions

 

How can this be free?
Creating resources like FaithElement isn't without cost. Traditionally, these costs were paid by churches as they purchases resources and services. FaithElement is following an approach similar to the one used by radio stations and magazine publishers... with some of our costs covered through advertising. In our case, we are careful about accepting sponsorships only from appropriate vendors. Over time, FaithElement will also offer special studies and other resources for sale. However, we also rely on donations from our users. Click here to support FaithElement. You can also help support Faithelement by hiring Faithlab (who owns Faithelement) to develeop a great new website for your church.

Where is your statement of belief?
We're big on "actions speak louder than words." How we live and relate to God and others is vastly more important than agreeing with a list of statements. However, if we had to point to a statement of belief, we can't imagine doing any better than the one that's stood the test of time, the Apostle's Creed.

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

We don't have Internet access where our group meets. How do we show the Bible background videos?
(Updated 12-10-2012) Most groups will find that the easiest way to show the video segments will be with a laptop (just ask for a volunteer to bring theirs to group meetings). You can download our Bible Background Video, or the linked YouTube (and other) videos using this software:  Clipgrab

Why are there multiple session pages for each week?
There are many ways to learn about God and grow in faith. We want persons to follow the approach that works best for them. Feel free to use the session page that works best for your group, or mix them up, using "Mental" one week, "Mystic" another, and so forth. Or, select portions from across the pages. It's your group, and all groups are unique -  which is why we offer so much flexibility.

How are Scriptures chosen for study?
We usually draw from the Revised Common Lectionary for text selection. See upcoming studies here.

I want the weekday devotional thoughts and action challenges, but I'm not on Facebook or Twitter. How do I get these?
Just sign up for our free enewsletter (see the box in the right sidebar). The info we share during the week is the same for Facebook, Twitter and the enewsletter. Choose the approach you prefer.

How can I help support FaithElement?
You can support FaithElement by supporting our sponsors, purchasing special FaithElement resources, and by making direct financial gifts. If your business or organization would like to sponsor a month or more of FaithElement, contact Faithlab. We also appreciate your comments and prayers!

What is planned for FaithElement in the future?
We plan to release new features and adjust our approach as we hear from our users. Let us know what you need!
