Hello, dear members,

We have been lax in enforcing the mission and vision of this website, but let me please explain it for you here. In our Constitution and ByLaws, which you can read in the Founding Documents forum, we say this:

Constitution and ByLaws wrote:II. The purposes of CNV shall be:
A. To bring together Christian believers who also are supportive of non-sexualized naturism, for mutual fellowship and support, evangelism and education.
B. To provide mutual fellowship, encouragement and support to all who visit this website.
C. To provide Christians an opportunity to share with all who visit, their love for the Lord, and the redemption from sin that's available through Jesus Christ.
D. To provide an avenue whereby people who don't know about or understand non-sexualized naturism may find godly, Christian answers to their questions.


You see, the purpose for this website is to give Christian naturists a place for fellowship and evangelism.

Now, we all know people who love the Lord, but are very confused about nudism / naturism. We also all know people who are nudists / naturists who do not know the Lord.

How do we do evangelism best? By not offending those whom we want to reach.

If you don't want to offend your non-Christian neighbors, you certainly won't play loud Christian music over your car radio cranked up so loud they curse at you.

And, if you don't want to offend your cautious, non-believing (but Christian) friends who really don't know for sure about nudism / naturism, you certainly won't flaunt it before them.

So, we put up this website to help us win friends and influence people in both camps.

First, we have to show people that we are simply genuine, real people. That's the purpose of the first Please Introduce Yourself forum. That means, No talk about nudism, and no strongly Christian talk. Just introduce yourself. Save the faith stories and the nudist talk for the second and third forums. Get it? That way, people who "walk by" can first learn to know us for who we are, fathers, mothers, grandparents, teens, college students, etc., who simply love life, in lots of different ways. Then, if they want to learn about your faith, they can read the second forum. If they want to learn about your feelings about nudism / naturism, they can read the third forum. And if they don't, they don't have to.

So, let's be friendly folk, and friendly evangelists. But let's not parade one topic all over the front lawn, for those not yet ready for it.

Thanks for your cooperation.
Happiness is neither within us only, or without us; it is the union of ourselves with God.
