Unity in essentials, liberty in non-essentials, charity in all things: As diversified as the Christian Church is, we are to make every effort to maintain unity in the essentials (which means adhering to the gospel), allow liberty (freedom of choice) in the non-essentials, and be charitable in all things, even when we passionately disagree! In other words, when we disagree we are not to be disagreeable. In the Church our unity in Christ means that our diversity does not become division. And our diversity means that our unity does not become uniformity.
