We believe in Jesus Christ
Everything we do begins with Christ. We remember how he ministered to the poor, fed the hungry, healed the sick, befriended sinners, welcomed the shunned and sacrificed himself to save us. He rose from the dead and gives us hope.
We welcome the hard work of prophecy
Our close proximity to power gives us the chance to speak for the powerless. We are mindful that prophets examine themselves closely before sharing their message with the world.
We serve God by serving others
We remember the second of Christ’s greatest commandments is to love each other. We make personal commitments to working with people in our neighborhood and around the world.
We believe our minds are great gifts from God
We are intellectually honest and curious. We view science, scholarship and other religious traditions as tools to discover the wonder of God’s Word and creation.
We worship joyfully
We sing and pray and study with passion and intellect and energy. We are an Easter people, and we are glad.
We honor humanity as well as divinity
We believe all people are children of God, and we treat them that way.
We celebrate diversity
We make especially sure that people who feel excluded elsewhere are welcomed and invited to be an integral part of our congregation.
We cherish God’s gifts.
God blesses us with time, talent, money, opportunity and the Earth we now call home. We strive to be responsible stewards of God’s great bounty.

Rev. Ginger Gaines-Cirelli
How should persons of faith respond when government officials and political leaders behave in ways that contradict values long espoused by Christian tradition? How should churches respond? Sacred Resistance: A Practical Guide to Christian Witness and Dissent provides thoughtful guidance for those pondering their answers to those questions.BUY NOW
