We believe that God is imminent and active in the world - in other words, God is on a continuing mission to engage creation! Our part is to notice where God is busy in our lives and our neighborhood, and then join in. We are always looking for partners - people who are willing to teach us the things they know that we don't. Yet. Maybe you are one of those people?
We believe God intends for life to be full - full of joy, full of wonder, full of passion - and we try to live that way. So you'll find us singing and laughing when blessing comes. You'll also find us energetic and curious when some new discovery comes. And you'll find us compassionate, kind and sturdy when trouble comes.
We believe that Jesus is God's anointed One, and through him we have seen that love is the fundamental nature of God. But we have also seen in Jesus what God intends for human life to be, and we are trying to follow in the Way Jesus walked. We believe the Bible is the unique and authoritative witness to what God has been doing in the world and presents the only clear picture we have of Jesus and his teaching. We take our Bible seriously as a guide and illustration to our life here, as children of God. An instruction book, if you will, about how to live as if God was in charge of things. What a great idea!
We believe that God is present with us now in the Holy Spirit. But we also believe that we hear the Spirit most clearly through each other--working, praying and worshiping together in a community bound through promises of mutual aid and support. It's not the easiest model on which to build a community. It takes more effort to stay together - with 9 people in the room, you'll usually have 10 opinions! But we are convinced the Holy Spirit is the glue which holds us together, and we know we can do far more in this web of connection we call the church than we could ever do alone.
