We are an inter-denominational Christian community, committed to sharing the Word of Jesus and doing the works of Jesus with all people, without prejudice or discrimination.
We welcome all without prejudice to join us in
becoming friends of God,
growing in faith,
discovering their place in God's family
healing our world.
(Galatians 3.26-28; 2 Corinthians 5.14-21)
people who have never felt they had a place in God's family being welcomed and embraced as God's own children
being a hospital for the hurting where broken lives, broken marriages, partnerships, and relationships are healed
being a church that is not about serving ourselves but reaching out as Christ's hands and feet into the community
We dream of ministries
that are team-based not personality-driven
where new believers are equipped and set free to help serve and lead
that balance educating the mind, healing the heart, and meeting practical needs in the community
that multiply by birthing new ministries meeting new needs in new areas
where every person involved is given a voice.
(Although we join mainstream Christianity in affirming the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds, as well as the historic confessions of the Christian faith, we choose the following statement of faith as best expressing our focus as a church:)
We are not alone, we live in God's world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God's presence,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus,
crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us.
We are not alone. Thanks be to God.
