Beliefs

We believe in living out the following:

  1. Listening for God’s Word, which comes through regular prayer and meditation, studying the ancient testimonies which we call Scripture, and attending to God’s present activity in the world.
  2. Celebrating the God whose Spirit pervades and whose glory is reflected in all of God’s Creation, including the earth and its ecosystems, the sacred and secular, the Christian and non-Christian.
  3. Expressing our love in worship that is as sincere, vibrant, and artful as it is scriptural.
  4. Walking fully in the Path of Jesus without denying the legitimacy of other paths that God may provide for humanity.
  5. Engaging people authentically, as Jesus did, treating all as creations made in God’s very image, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental ability, nationality, or economic class.
  6. Standing, as Jesus does, with the outcast and oppressed, the denigrated and afflicted, seeking peace and justice with or without the support of others.
  7. Walking humbly with God, acknowledging our own shortcomings while honestly seeking to understand and call forth the best in others, including those who consider us their enemies.
