What We Believe

We believe in God who created all things and keeps creating, making all things new. We see the world as God’s gift, a precious life-giving, life-sustaining home that calls for our just and careful stewardship. 

We believe in God who comes to us in Jesus of Nazareth, God’s son, fully human and fully divine. Through Jesus’ obedient trust in God and his compassion for a broken humanity, God has worked healing and renewal for all the world. On the Cross, Jesus extends his arms in forgiveness, welcoming all into relationship with God. In Christ, all are welcome.   

We believe in God who is present through the Holy Spirit to both create and sustain faith. The Spirit calls us into faith, gathers us into community, teaches us the will and ways of God, and leads us into becoming faithful friends and servants of neighbors in need.

We believe that God raised Jesus from death, resurrecting Jesus to new life and that by baptism and faith, all who come to trust in Jesus Christ are promised resurrection as well.

We believe Jesus has given every believer a ministry of reconciliation, a life-long commitment to becoming instruments of hope and healing for a loved but broken world. Christ Jesus lives today wherever there are people who faithfully trust in him, wherever the Good News of reconciliation is preached, and the Sacraments of Baptism and Lord’s Supper are shared.
