Statement of Purpose

We are a community called by a loving God through Jesus Christ to worship, grow, and serve.

From diverse paths, we come together on a journey of transformation, which brings us to accept ourselves as loved by God and encourages honesty in our relationships with others and with God.

These relationships provide a safe context in which, drawing upon scripture, experience, understanding, and Christian tradition, we explore our faith convictions and doubts.

Relying upon God’s grace, our community gathers for worship, renewal and service, and sends us forth for bold and faithful ministry in our daily lives.

We covenant with the Lord and with one another and doe bynd ourselves in the presence of God, to walke together in all His waies, according as He is pleased to reveale Himself unto us in His blessed word of truth.
