About Us

What We Believe

"In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things, Charity" John Wesley

Our Essentials

1. God's presence, love and grace surround us, go before us, and greet us on the way.

2. Commitment to Jesus Christ, as savior and Lord, is essential to being a Christian. When we are baptized we become members of the community of faith.

3. The goal of the Christian life is to attain during our lifetime all the desired qualities of love enabled by the Holy Spirit.

4. The Bible contains everything we need to know for the practice of the Christian life; it is most responsibly interpreted using the Christian community's best gifts of reason, tradition, and experience.
