God is with us.
God made each one of us, God was fully human and fully divine in Jesus Christ, and God’s Spirit continues to guide us. We connect to God and to one another in our weekly worship services and our life together in Christ’s community.
God speaks to us.
The Bible is God’s inspired word. Through scripture, we meet Christ, hear of God’s love and mercy, and receive guidance for life and faith. Studying scripture together is an opportunity to hear God’s voice through the community.
God welcomes us all.
God made a world full of the beautiful range of people, creatures, and all life. We are a Reconciling in Christ congregation who declares God’s love for people of all races, languages, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, economic status, and abilities.
God renews our faith, connects us in relationship, and uses our gifts to respond to the world around us.
