Our Beliefs

We believe…

We believe that faith is not something that you do on your own, but should be lived out amongst others. We encourage the practice of sharing life with one another as we walk forward through the good times and bad. While true faith is indeed a relationship between an individual and Jesus, faith is also better lived out in community with others.

In the midst of sharing life, we urge all to move beyond our lives to embracing Christ in all that we do. We commonly embrace those whom we love so it’s only appropriate to do so with the God who loved us first. God seeks a relationship with us because He loves us, so we look for ways that we can embrace Christ with our very lives.We believe in the basics of the Christian faith as described in The Apostle’s Creed and The Nicene Creed.

We are a church in connection with The United Methodist Church. We consider ourselves Biblically conservative and socially progressive as we seek to live out God’s call in line with Jesus’ teachings. Some may struggle with how to be both of these things at the same time, but we view Jesus that way. He was conservative in his love and adherence to scripture and yet quite progressive in how he interacted with people of the time and dispensed grace and love to all. How can you get your hands dirty if you don’t get into the dirt?
