Every so often, someone will ask us what we believe. It can be a loaded question for a lot of denominations out there, because it seems like every different denomination has its own “take” on certain parts of the Bible.
So let’s start with this: Men are men.
Men are our target audience, whether they’re soldiers, race car drivers, recovering addicts or guys at your typical men’s ministry Saturday morning pancake breakfast. No matter who they are, men seem to suffer from the same battles, irrespective of where they go to church or what they believe. And that is what we hit.
That being said, we’ll first say that we don’t present the live Rough Cut Men “Movie Experience” in the original King James Version, nor do we speak it in tongues— that’s a joke, by the way. Rough Cut Men cuts a very wide path around anything doctrinally challenging, like pre- versus post-millennial or the gifts of the Spirit. We deal with building friendships, overcoming relational wounds and solidifying marriages, using a solid Biblical basis founded on Scripture. Nothing more, nothing less.
