    My preference for thinking about faith is to replace the belief aspect
    with a decision to live a certain way. So my ideal Christian Church
    would interpret faith as trust, loyalty, and conviction but not factual

    That's exactly what I want to get into. What statements if any must
    someone hold as factually true to be a Christian?
