What We Believe
We believe that God is a loving God who made the human being in God’s image. Therefore, all people are of value and loved by God.
In Christ, the head of the church, God conquers sin and reconciles the world to Divine Love. We believe in God, and we follow Jesus.
God’s continuing presence and activity in the world.
God, Christ, Holy Spirit are one.
A community of people united in Christ through worship, work, and witness--not a building.
The inspired Word of God. We take scripture seriously, not literally.
Service to Others
The mission of the Church is to work for justice and to establish God’s Realm in the world.
We celebrate two: Baptism and Communion. It is through baptism that persons are joined in faith with Jesus and accepted into the fellowship of the church. The breaking of bread and pouring of wine are done in remembrance of Christ’s death and his resurrection.
Faith isn't not asking questions. It's asking questions, doubting, believing, and trusting. It's messy, it's hard, it's worth it.
