    Strong religious schools emphasize their own religious community and faith. However, in the interest of social
    cohesion, it is important to know what the teachers in these schools believe about religious diversity. We conducted
    sixteen in-depth interviews with Christian primary school teachers about the Christian faith and their beliefs regarding
    religious others. People’s relationship with God is a central issue in their beliefs, and beliefs about religious others
    speak to issues of distinction, identification, or recognition. However, teachers show ambivalence when it comes to
    concrete encounters. We consider it valuable that teachers are stimulated to actively discuss contrasting beliefs.
