Who we are

A progressive Christian Church committed to:

Faith as a Journey

Compassionate Service

Inclusion of All

Faith as a Journey

We believe that faith is a process, a journey.  It isn't about having all the right answers.  We come from many backgrounds and traditions. In our church there are no tests of faith. The Bible is taken seriously but not literally. When we join the church we agree that we will “seek to know more and more of Jesus Christ so that our lives may be enriched and God’s realm may be furthered on earth.”

We do not say what this means for any individual. Our church is founded on the right of each member to follow the word of God according to the dictates of conscience, under the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit.

At the same time, we take seriously the historical creeds of the church and are guided by several covenants, which guide our shared life as a congregation.

Compassionate Service

Mission and social action are a vital part of the expression of our Christian faith as we are called by God to make a difference in the world for good. Our congregation is known in the community for being active and involved in reaching out to meet human need and in being agents of social change to address the challenges of our times.

Inclusion of All

Everyone is welcome here: believers and agnostics, conventional Christians and questioning skeptics, people of all sexual orientations, the despairing and the hopeful, those of all races and cultures, and those of all classes and abilities. Jesus didn’t turn anyone away—neither do we.

United Church of Christ

We are a people of faith on a journey of faith. Our church is a part of the wider family of Christian churches called The United Church of Christ (UCC). The UCC is characterized by respect for an individual’s belief, local church governance (no hierarchy telling us what to do!), honor of various worship traditions, and active involvement in the world to further justice and offer hope for all.
