The unity we seek as the Body of Christ requires neither an uncritical acceptance of any point of view nor a rigid formulation of doctrine.
We believe God is the creator of the universe and giver of all that is good. God is the savior—known boldly and intimately in Jesus and his life, death, and resurrection—who shows us how to live and love. God is the Spirit who enables us to make a difference in our world and in the lives of others. We believe that grace is the love, honesty, and compassion that God gives and shows us in Jesus. It’s how Jesus saves us, heals us, sets us free, and increases our capacity for love. We believe that we need each other.
Whether single, married/partnered, divorced or widowed, it’s a lot easier to follow God with friends than it is by ourselves. We believe in the priesthood of all believers: All members are called to minister to others and to participate as equals in the common worship of God.
