What we Believe
We believe that the essence of God’s character is love. We believe that God’s love is expressed into the world most fully in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
We give thanks to God that the love of Jesus gives us an example to follow in relation to our neighbors.
We celebrate the forgiveness that God extends in Jesus as we live into the truth that our mistakes do not hold us back. In Jesus we are forgiven of the harm that we have done and set free to love. We seek to welcome the grace of God into all of our relationships.
We rejoice in the hope that God is able to bring good out of every situation. This hope is grounded in the truth that in the death and resurrection of Jesus; that out of the worst situation in the history of the world (God, dead and in the grave) God was able to bring the best outcome (resurrection life!).
We believe that God is both intimate and transcendent; beyond us and at the same time with us and in us. We are on a journey of faith and are committed to welcoming, loving, and encouraging each other along the way.
