RASTAS: We are not Rastafarians. While our name may sound like a play on words or some kind of cult, in Greek and Latin it means “a group of people who collectively choose to bear or represent the name of Jesus Christ.” It’s where the name “Christopher” comes from. You can’t say our name without putting “Christ” first.
DRUGS/MARIJUANA: We don’t smoke marijuana, cigarettes, vape, or use any sort of drugs or alcohol. Being completely sober is a key part of our ministry and witness to others.
BLM: We don’t ascribe to the philosophy of Black Lives Matter. Although the majority of our band are people of color and they sure do matter, we believe that ALL SOULS MATTER - from the womb to the tomb!
CRT: We do not support Critical Race Theory. We all come from Adam and Eve and are one blood. Any form of racism is absolutely unacceptable since every single one of us was made in the image of God.
ABORTION: We oppose abortion. God’s Word is very clear that life begins at conception. We’ve recorded pro-life songs and have been a part of many pro-life events.
SEX: We believe sex is only acceptable (and encouraged!) in a God-ordained marriage between a man and a woman, and therefore we do not condone sex before our outside of marriage.
LGBTQ+: We do not support the LGBTQ+ agenda. Romans 1 is clear and we firmly believe that God loves us all too much to let us stay in our sin. We love and pray for all people fervently. We speak about this from personal experience, as a few of our members have come out of this sin in the past and have been straight for a few years - praise the Lord! They now use their powerful testimonies to reach others for Christ.
We aren’t free from scrutiny, pastoral oversight, or accountability. We hold to Billy Graham’s modesto manifesto, have accountability partners within (and outside of) the band, and we have pastors that speak into our lives and correct us as necessary.
We aren’t against your asking any questions or raising any other concerns you may have with us. We would love to alleviate any possible doubts that you may have regarding this ministry.
We will also gladly forward an extensive list of pastorals references upon request.

Until all have heard...
