|SERMONS, ESSAYS AND OPINIONS|
WikiChristian is free textbook of Biblical Christianity that does not have a sole author but has many contributors around the globe. It was started in May 2004 and now contains 4,102 articles (not including Bible verses and other public domain texts) and 349,901 total pages.
Of the WikiChristian pages, some are full of information whereas others are small and need work. Committed Christians who feel comfortable with this wiki's statement of faith and who have a deep interest in understanding and communicating the Christian faith are the primary editors of this wiki. WikiChristian particularly seeks editors who are either working in Christian ministry (both ordained and non-ordained roles) or have studied aspects of Christianity deeply (especially if through tertiary studies). Having editors like this helps maintain the focus and emphasis of this wiki on a form of Christianity that is informed by a Biblical worldview. Having workers in ministry and/or Christians who have deeply studied their faith helps ensure that the information is relevant and accurate.
Vision and Policies of WikiChristian
WikiChristian is both an encyclopedia and textbook and a wiki community. WikiChristian is set up with the belief that every Christian, regardless of age, race, education, and gender has something of value to offer! Unfortunately due to enormous amounts of spam in recent years it became untenable to maintain the wiki as an open wiki that anyone could edit, thus editing rights are currently restricted but we hope that significant editing restrictions does not become a permanent state of affairs.
With time we particularly hope to see WikiChristian become an incredibly useful reference on any topic related to Christianity. It's articles do not need to be of a neutral point of view (personal opinions can be voiced), as long as the author of the article makes it clear what his or her background is. For guidance though on the slant of this wiki please do see our Page Layout and Writing Guide and Statement of Faith pages.
WikiChristian intends to be a reference point for factual information, original texts, Bible versions, Bible dictionaries, song lyrics and personal testimonies of Christians. We intend to create a wiki community of Christians from around the globe who can voice their views, share their ideas and help others understand Christianity and its principles! Simply - WikiChristian wants to represent, document and link everything related to Christianity but from the perspective of the world's committed Christians!
Who Started WikiChristian?
WikiChristian was started by two Christian believers who happen to be medical doctors by profession, Dr. Prab R Tumpati in USA and Dr. Graham L Grove in Australia. While the secular world has so many wiki projects going on, we felt a need for a wiki forum for all Christians so that we can share what we believe, who Jesus Christ is and how God loves this world. Their own philosophies about WikiChristian can be found in the following links
Major Developments in WikiChristian's History
Through its history WikiChristian has generally developed gradually and progressively. In mid 2008 a major overhaul of the organization of the site began when Robert Murphy helped arrange a number of measures including uploading the entire Bible in a number of languages and translations, verse by verse. We are incredibly grateful to him for all his work.
Through the years 2009 to 2015 WikiChristian was hit by an incredible amount of vandalism and spam which almost shut WikiChristian down. To save the site editing was closed down and the site lay essential dormant through these long years. In 2015 its founders and senior editors Prab and Graham attempted to bring WikiChristian back into activity. Please put WikiChristian in your prayers as it aims to be an incredibly useful source of information for Christian disciples everywhere.
