A Berlin Gestapo report on a meeting of German Christians quotes a clergyman as saying: "They say that everyone is equal before God. But baptism never made a Jew into a German, nor did it ever straighten a crooked, hook-nose."

This aptly expresses the anti-Semitic belief that being Jewish is a question of race, not religion, and is therefore not something that a person can ever be rid of. German Christians strive to redefine the very nature of the Christian church itself. Instead of a universal community of believers, the idea of the Christian church is transformed so that it is dependent upon German notions of race and ethnicity — thus, the church becomes an expression not only of Christian doctrine but also German culture.

According to German Christians, God is revealed to humanity not just in Scripture and through Jesus, but also through in nature (race) and history. By separating the earthly church from the universal community of believers allows German Christians to dismiss any obligation to universality. Seeing God’s revelations through nature, German Christians are able to argue that race and racial differences are themselves a sanctified part of God's for humanity.
