what we believe


God is Love

We believe that God is love. God is the creator of the universe and source of all that is good. God opens our eyes to a world of mystery, miracle, and meaning.


Son of God

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, our Lord and Savior, known to us intimately in his life, death, and resurrection, by whose example we know how to live and love.

Holy Spirit

Breath of the Divine

We believe that God’s Holy Spirit is the breath of the divine, present with us in every circumstance, active in the redemptive process, calling us to follow her lead and inspiring us with compassion, creativity, and boldness.

The Church

Body of Christ

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, a community of people called to heal a broken and hurting world, and to be a community in which justice is proclaimed and lives are transformed.

The Bible


We believe in grace-filled, Spirit-led faith formation that is grounded in Scripture and informed by tradition, reason, and experience. We share our diverse scriptural perspectives and interpretations in community as we move together toward a deeper understanding of who God is and who God calls us to be.


Saved by Grace

We believe that we are saved from sin by grace, which is at work in us even before we are aware of it. Grace enables us to realize our need of God and draws us ever closer to the divine. Through our practices of discipleship, we cooperate with God’s grace in a life-long process of salvation. Wesleyan theology describes these various expressions of grace with the terms prevenient, justifying, and sanctifying grace.)

The Sacraments

Baptism & Holy Communion

Baptism and Holy Communion are each means of grace, conduits through which God reaches out to us. Baptism initiates and incorporates the individual into the community, and is available to all ages, from infant to adult. Communion is the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, a remembrance of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and an anticipation of the heavenly banquet, and is open to all persons.

Christian Living

Our Vows

Though we live our discipleship in unique ways, there is a common framework comprised of our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Together we live the liturgy of life, the collective work of the people. The community participates in a rhythm, an ordo of daily, weekly, and yearly cycles, including worship, faith formation, works of mercy and justice, high holy days, and Sabbath as a sacred rest.

Jesus was angry at the Pharisees for their hardness of heart, and it motivated him to heal the man’s hand. Embracing anger can be hard to do, especially since we are so often coached to avoid it. However, often those who are telling us to avoid anger are only doing

“Confession is just spiritual language for truth-telling” (from the Arthur Riley devo). When we confess, sharing the truth about ourselves with God and with one another, it sets us free. We release those parts of us that are not authentic to who we are so that we are free to
