What We Believe
We are a Reconciling Congregation, which means that we affirm and celebrate all of God’s children. Specifically, we aim to be inclusive and affirming of the GLBTAIA+ community. In 2007, we adopted our official reconciling statement:
We believe in the teachings and life and ministry of Jesus our Christ, our Savior, as a model for how to bring about abundant life to all.
We believe in the presence of the Holy Spirit, filling each of us as we gather and work as a community.
We believe in a living God, who dwells within us and challenges us to grow in our love of self and neighbor.
We believe there are many ways to faithfully interpret and encounter the Bible. We believe in the Wesleyan Quadrilateral, which allows a variety of people with deep faith and broad experiences to be in conversation together. The Quadrilateral uses the lenses of tradition, reason and experience to shape how we interpret and understand Scripture.
