We are a community of faith and fellowship

bound together in the love of God,
guided by the teachings and example of Jesus Christ,
united in worship.

We covenant with God and one with another

to further the ministry of Jesus Christ
proclaiming and teaching the reign of God

to deepen our love and understanding of God

sustaining our journey in joyful praise, prayer, and song
seeking and developing a relationship with Jesus Christ
being vulnerable to the Spirit’s transforming presence in our life

to invite others into this life and ministry

welcoming the stranger and sojourner
offering the entrance of baptism
making room at the table for all God’s family

to be a light to the world by living as one people

nurturing and supporting one another
forgiving and living as forgiven
respecting all the traditions from which we come
accepting the gifts that each brings
being a community of caring as well as justice

to equip ourselves for God’s service

being faithful stewards of the gifts God has given us
praying for the Spirit’s guidance
studying scripture and tradition
acting upon God’s new calling of us

to be the body of Christ, a disciple, God’s servant in our world

helping those who suffer
treating all God’s creation with respect
bridging that which separates God’s family
challenging oppression and injustice
living courageously as one of God’s own

to act upon Christ’s resurrection

being a community of hope
knowing that no love is lost and trusting that the future is God’s.
