Conventional Faith

The answers you gave, helped us identify your faith style. From the combination of your answers, we can tell that your faith is Conventional

Introduction

Conventional believers value community and holding on to the unchanging truths of teaching and texts.

For people in a Conventional FaithStyle, faith is more than just Bible stories, it is about higher ideas. For them faith is no longer simple unrelated stories and rituals. They now see the Bible stories and Religious rituals as part of a more connected narrative about values and morals. They have the ability to see layers of meaning in the stories, rituals and symbols of their faith.
Conventional believers have the ability to see things from someone else’s viewpoint. They can thus also imagine what others think about them and their faith.
People in a Conventional FaithStyle claim their faith as their own. Faith is no longer just being what the people around them do.
The matter of religious authority is important to people in a Conventional FaithStyle. For them authority usually resides with important adults in their lives, friends and religious community. For them, religious power resides mostly outside of them personally.

The texts and stories of our religion is absolutely true
