We believe that the Ten Commandments forms a basis for how we try to live with other people and the Lord’s Prayer points us to how to live in the world. We practice the Sacraments Jesus taught us, namely Baptism – where we become part of God’s family and part of the church universal. And Holy Communion – where we celebrate Jesus’s continued presence among us. The Bible in both parts tells us about God’s relationship with humanity and an awful lot about what it means to be a human.
We believe that the way to create "heaven on earth" is to work intentionally toward creating a world where everyone has safety, dignity, meaningful work, love, and enough to eat. We believe that God loves every person, period.
We believe we are called to live these things we know to be true about God in the world around us. We believe we are God's people in this place to make God's work alive and seen in the world. We believe we are Jesus's hands and feet in the world. We believe Jesus meant it when he taught us to pray "on earth as it is in heaven." We accept everyone and work to support each individual to live their fullest life possible. In plain language, we believe God loves and welcomes ALL: All ages, all viewpoints, all genders, sexual identities and expressions, all abilities and ethnicities. Since God loves you, we do too. We welcome all who want to be a part of the community.
