Guiding Principles

Values: As an expression of loyalty to Christ Jesus we strive to be progressive, inclusive, and authentic as we live our lives in service to God’s world.

Guiding Principles

1.     Welcoming and honoring all.

We create an environment within our community of honesty, trust and support. Each person’s fundamental being and integrity are valued. Following Christ’s commands to love each other, and not to judge others, we offer acceptance to all so that everyone can grow in their faith.

2.     Discovering and responding to God’s call.

We value multiple ways of knowing God and exploring faith through the community that shares God’s love.  We encourage people to search for God in their lives, however God may be revealed to them.

3.     Transforming lives through relationships centered in Jesus.

God works in peoples’ lives through worship, serving others and community, to give us hope, strength, and joy.  Working together, we strive to guide people through their journeys so that God can strengthen them through faith, hope and love.

4.     Serving through the example of Jesus.

We serve by following the example of Jesus, who works through us in love, service and worship; we do this to glorify God.
