Who We Are

Matthew 25:40We see ourselves as a faith community in which we can discover the resources for our work in this world: striving for justice and peace among all people, bringing hope to those Jesus called the least of these, feeding the hungry, advocating for the children of this world, and preserving the environment.

We hold no rigid doctrine but believe in the triune God: Creator, Christ and Holy Spirit. We seek, in worship, to celebrate our grand diversity and the many faith traditions that have brought us to this time.We believe that we are called to be a prophetic church in the tradition of the prophets and apostles, where God calls us to speak truth to power.

We trust and respect each person’s spiritual journey in life. We welcome all persons without regard to age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, race, physical or mental ability, national origin or scriptural interpretations.
