Desiring to draw closer to what God calls us to be, we have chosen to follow Five Practices of a Fruitful Congregation by Robert Schnase to guide us in addressing key social issues such as unity through diversity, grace in a broken world, and being a Christian in today’s world.
We strive to accept different understandings and expressions of our faith with the common belief in the Triune God. We believe we come to God at different places in our spiritual journeys. We believe that all people are created equal in God’s eyes. Our church family consists of different genders, ages, races, and social backgrounds. We welcome, accept and encourage all of God’s children-believers and non-believers. Our love for God and our faith in Christ binds us together as one.
We joyfully celebrate the undeserved love and grace of God in our lives. This grace creates compassion and empathy for a broken world leading us to provide a safe and welcoming place for people by supporting various groups as well as providing compassionate care. We are empowered to live fruitful lives through worship, faith development, fellowship, and service.
We believe the Holy Spirit is at work today changing hearts and minds and transforming lives for God’s Glory. Therefore we strive to be doers of the Word and not just listeners. We must act to feed the hungry, comfort the sick, befriend the lonely, share the Good News, work for peace and in doing so, reach out to a world in need.
