One Sovereign, one faith, one baptism, one God and Parent of all, who is above all, and through all and in all. But each of us was given grace according to the measure of Christ’s gift. – Ephesians 4:6-7
God’s dream is the unity of all creation in Jesus Christ. Jesus lived, died, and rose again that all barriers to unity might be broken down. Jesus’ ministry was filled with extravagant grace, radical inclusion, and relentless compassion. The church should reflect God’s embrace of all creation. The waters of baptism do not discriminate. Baptism makes us all one in Christ. In communion Christ’s body is broken and life spilled out, so that all people might be united with God, with one another, and in ministry to the whole world.
We are convinced that God wants us to welcome all people, just as they are.
Regardless of Faith Background
Our members come from a wide spectrum of denominational and faith backgrounds. Our worship is intentionally designed to reflect this diversity in its rituals and music. There should be a little of something for everyone. We are a Christian church, but we are determined that no one feel excluded.
Regardless of where folk are on their faith journey, they are welcome here. We are all seeking the truth together.
Regardless of Gender
Women and men serve equally in our congregation. Transgender people are welcome and serve in positions of leadership. In worship we use inclusive images and language.
Regardless of Sexual Orientation
We welcome people of all sexual orientations, and they serve in leadership in our church. Read our essay on “It’s OK to Be Gay” if you have any questions.
Regardless of Ability
We are constantly working to welcome and include all God’s children. Our facility is handicapped accessible. We have had sign language translation of our worship services when it was needed. We even make gluten-free communion wafers available for those with dangerous gluten allergies.
Regardless of Race
God’s creation is filled with diversity. Our congregation includes people from many different racial and ethnic backgrounds. In our worship and ministries, we strive to include contributions from various cultures. We hope to become even more racially diverse as our message of radical welcome and inclusive love is heard by more people.
