Diversity in Faith: A Christian Church for All People

Who We Are

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.

Our Mission

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)


 

Our Vision

We envision

  • 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.

 

Our Faith

(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.

Four Freedoms.

We join churches in the free church tradition in upholding the following freedoms:
  • Soul freedom: Your soul is competent before God, and capable of making decisions in matters of faith without coercion or compulsion by any larger religious or civil body
  • Church freedom: freedom of the local church from outside interference, whether government, civilian, or outside religious authority
  • Bible freedom: the individual is free to interpret the Bible for himself or herself, using the best tools of scholarship and biblical study available to the individual
  • Religious freedom: the individual is free to choose whether to practice their religion, another religion, or no religion; Separation of church and state is often called the "civil corollary" of religious freedom
