THE FAITH WE AFFIRM
We stand firmly in the Christian faith tradition, acknowledging the ministry of Jesus as a way to deepen our relationship with God.
We also affirm other faith traditions and realize that they too are a way toward a closer intimacy with the Creator.
We believe that the love of God and the love of neighbor are at the very core of what it means to be Christian.
We affirm the gifts of the Spirit in all persons, recognizing that every Christian is a minister, empowered to carry out Jesus’ teachings.
We embrace diversity by acknowledging that all people are created in God’s own image, understanding that we see and experience God in different ways.
We celebrate communion weekly, believing it to be central to our worship, and we welcome all people to Christ’s table. We believe that Baptism is a gift from God that connects us to the life and teachings of Jesus. As a faith community affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we recognize all forms of Christian Baptism.
