What We Believe

Jesus Christ is our Savior. Our church is the body of Christ, a community of forgiven sinners, saved by God’s grace, reformed and always reforming. We act on Christ’s command to love others as he has loved us and to answer the call of the Holy Spirit by saying, “Here I am, Lord, send me.”

Based on scriptures: Romans 12:4-8, Ephesians 2:8, John 13:34, Isaiah 6:8

How We Are Called to Live

Empowered by the Holy Spirit we will use our individual and collective gifts to:

PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST by sharing the story of his sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins. We engage with the diverse community around us, and invite all to share in God’s grace along with us.

BUILD A NURTURING COMMUNITY OF FAITH where transformation and renewal take place.  By means of spiritual fellowship, we encourage all people to use their strengths to build up God’s kingdom. We gather at church-wide events and in small groups for study, fellowship and service. We comfort each other in times of loss and illness and we share our celebrations.

GATHER TO WORSHIP GOD with praise and thanksgiving, to celebrate the sacraments, to confess our sins, and to pray for God’s continued presence in our lives and in the world. Our worship includes traditional practices, as well as non-traditional forms of expression.

SEEK AND PRESERVE THE TRUTH of God’s love through discipleship, study and prayer. We challenge each other to become more deeply engaged in a relationship with God, to know his story and to make it our own. We prepare and guide our young people for their lives as members of the body of Christ.

PROMOTE SOCIAL RIGHTEOUSNESS by looking beyond ourselves into the world and by serving others as a church and as individuals. We work to right injustices on behalf of those whose voices are not heard. We are God’s helping hands when we partner with ministries within our community and beyond, where we share God’s love and blessings with those we encounter.

EXHIBIT GOD’S KINGDOM by living lives of integrity, worthy of God.  We walk through life acting out God’s Word in ways that are visible to others. We demonstrate the values Jesus taught us by taking words on a page and bringing them to life and inspiring others to do the same.
