Our Beliefs


Inviting all people into full life together in Jesus Christ.


To become a loving, welcoming community constantly formed by the
shared spiritual practices: Gather, Grow, Give, Go.

Shared Practices:
Gather – Worship & Sacraments
Grow – Scripture & Prayer
Give – Sabbath & Tithe
Go – Acts of Mercy and Justice & Pilgrimage

Core Values:

Our biblical foundations introduce us to a God who loves and
cherishes every person God has made, and so our hearts long for every person to
know they belong and have a spiritual home here in our church. We value
belonging, so we intentionally make space for others, especially those who have
been kept out.

Jesus models for us a genuine openness to others, notably those
excluded, marginalized and othered. And so we desire to learn, understand and
draw closer to God, other people, and creation.

The Holy Spirit provokes us to see to mend what is broken in our
world. And so we are willing to step into the hard place, make the unpopular
choice, do the difficult thing, even if it costs us because we know it is the right
thing, the loving thing.
