OUR CORE VALUES
What We Stand For
We nurture people to claim a calling of ministry, understand their place in God’s Kingdom on Earth, and their invaluable role in being the Body of Christ here and now.
Welcoming and Inclusive
We believe that everyone who comes through our doors not only contributes to our community and its ministry within but that person is someone who can join us in bringing relief to the downtrodden, hope to the despondent, liberty to the captive and good news to the poor.
We believe that God loves all without exception.
We believe in giving to those who are outside our church walls through outreach to the community, the nation and the world, and we believe in giving out of a sense of thanksgiving for the abundant gifts of God. This is the context in which we see our ministry of Stewardship.
We highly value Christian formation which includes education and we believe
that all are called to read, mark and inwardly learn in every way possible.
To that end, we are committed to Christian formation for all ages.
We place a high value on pastoral care and seek ways which are both traditional and novel to provide people and the animal world the comfort of the Gospel as the verbal and visible word of God.
We place a high value on engaging in worship that is intelligible to those new to the community, meaningful to the members of the congregation, and filled with prayerful thoughtfulness.
