We believe we are called by God to worship, to educate and to serve. As we live out our mission, we seek to unite individuals in worship, to nurture the development of individual and community faith, and to encourage service to others. In these and many other ways, we seek God's vision for
our future while attempting to honor our heritage of more than 130 years of faithful ministry.
This congregation is a diverse gathering of people. We strive to adhere to the essential truths of the historic Christian faith while at the same time recognizing that God is still speaking. We also recognize that faith is personal in nature, thus we endeavor to remain open to God's moving, growing Spirit in our midst. Therefore, we respect individuals as they faithfully raise questions and grow spiritually. For this reason, people of various religious, social and personal backgrounds are welcome in the life of this congregation.
We celebrate being part of the United Church of Christ, and the local church autonomy that is ours. We elect our leaders and call our own minister. All decision making processes rest in the membership of this congregation. We believe this enables us to be acutely responsive to the moving of God's Spirit around us and within us. We believe that, by God's Grace, we have lived this faithfully since 1872, and by God's enduring Grace, we continue to do so. For this we are
Inspire the World with the Inclusive Love of Jesus.
