We believe that God loves you no matter what, so we seek to be a community that loves you no matter what, too. All are enthusiastically welcomed here,

  • whether you have dark skin or light…
  • no matter your marital status or sexual orientation or gender identity…
  • whether you wear jeans, pearls, flip flops, or neckties…
  • whether you have tattoos, blue hair, or no hair…
  • whether you are in recovery or still addicted…
  • whether you can sing like Adele or can’t carry a tune in a bucket!

We embrace soccer moms, NASCAR dads, tree-huggers, and junk-food eaters… those who could use a prayer right now and those who aren’t sure about “organized” religion…

We embrace you whether you believe God loves you, or you hope to, or you think that’s just a ridiculous idea…

We know we’ve left someone out, but we hope you get the picture: We know God loves you no matter what, and we’re trying to do the same. We believe that it’s LOVE (not guilt, shame, judgment, or fear) that saves us and transforms us.


God…
is with you always. God loves you undeservedly and unconditionally. God wants to do life with us — comforting, guiding, strengthening, forgiving, welcoming us.

Jesus Christ…
is the human picture of God. Jesus shows us how God loves — unconditionally, sacrificially, recklessly.

The Holy Spirit…
is God present with you in the good and the bad, breath by breath, moment by moment.

The Bible…
is all about life with God. It tells the stories of how people understood their encounters with God. It is a collection of sacred and ancient texts, much of which was passed down orally and then written down by communities and individuals who experienced God over thousands of years. It’s a book of stories of faith, written by people of faith, for people of faith. It bears witness to an extraordinary story of a God whose love for humanity is always present, and whose movement in the world consistently seeks to bring healing, forgiveness, and guidance, to bring us back into union with God as God’s beloved children. Each part of the Bible was written for a particular people in a particular time in a particular place with a particular purpose. It wasn’t written in English.

The Church…
is the body of Christ in and for the world. We have been created to worship God together in community, and the church is a launching pad for sending love-filled people into the world who are equipped to live out their God-given ministry and mission.

You…
Well, let’s be honest — we don’t really know you yet, but we’re excited to meet you and your family! What we do know about you is that God loves you for who you are, where you are.  You are created by God with inherent dignity and worth.

The Membership Covenant…
Our greatest hope for all of us is that we would fully experience, live, and share God’s love in our everyday lives. We long for connection with God. Our membership covenant includes practices that we know help us to move closer to encountering God regularly in the ordinary moments of life:

  • pray daily / worship weekly
  • be in a small group / continue your Christian formation
  • serve within the walls of the church
  • serve beyond the walls of the church
  • give proportionately of your income, working toward a tithe (10%)

The Church Community covenants to support you in your growth by:

  • presenting Jesus Christ and teaching the “with-God” life
  • providing inviting, inspiring, and challenging worship experiences
  • providing opportunities for Christian formation
  • enabling service using spiritual gifts
  • providing care and spiritual support for persons in need
  • managing the resources of the church responsibly and transparently, consistent with God’s purposes
