OUR BELIEFS

A community for the “other,” and a haven in order to rest, dream, and change through Christ.

The “other” is the broken, the hurting, the outcast, the one who thinks they don’t measure up, etc. That’s all of us, for we’ve all fallen short. (Romans 3:23)

Rest by encountering Christ in community, both inside and outside the context of the local church.
Dream by encountering Christ through discipleship, thereby glimpsing the fullness of the faith.
Change by encountering Christ in worship and through the Sacraments.

FOUNDATIONAL

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matthew 22:37-40 NIV

“...what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Micah 6:8 NIV

THE APOSTLES’ CREED

We believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth;

We believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the Communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Amen.

THE HILLS WE DIE ON

AUTHENTICITY

We are who you see, flaws and all.

CONVERGENCE

Intentionally embracing the bigness of the Church by means of Scripture, Spirit, and Sacrament.

THE TABLE

The Lord’s Table and the dinner table is where community happens. The table is a place of refuge.

MOTIVATIONAL

“We have been called to heal wounds, to unite what has fallen apart, and to bring home those who have lost their way.”

St. Francis of Assisi

"The duty of the church is to comfort the disturbed and to disturb the comfortable."

Archbishop Michael Ramsey
