    • Are an inclusive, open and progressive community of faith within the liberal Christian tradition
    • take the Bible seriously, but not literally and using the best scholarship reinterpret the scriptures for our times
    • believe that a questioning theology is a healthy part of one’s spiritual journey
    • are called to live God’s vision of wholeness for all by:
      • loving and serving others
      • respecting all creation
      • celebrating life
      • embracing diversity such as sexual orientation, gender, age, race, religion, occupation, or socio-economic status
      • challenging injustices to create a safe sanctuary for all people to be themselves
    • “seek wholeness through the Spirit” for ourselves, others, the larger community and the world.
      Our mission “Seeking wholeness through the Spirit” inspires all that we do.
