This is a first draft of an essay I wrote for the BIC Core Course on History and Values. What the most important Brethren in Christ core values? Which are the most difficult to follow? These are the questions that this author is assigned to answer. Within the question itself, one may find the answer. The question presupposes that the things that make up the identity of the Brethren in Christ, found at least in part within its core values, can be evaluated individually. It is the contention of this author that they cannot be.
