Faith of Peace

Our Faith is rooted in the One Triune God to whom we belong in life and death, who came in Jesus Christ to reconcile the world,and whose Spirit transforms us into Christ’s image.

  • We believe God is clearly revealed in Jesus Christ. 
  • We believe worship honors God.
  • We believe that prayer is a vital part of our relationship with God.
  • We believe the Spirit of God speaks to us through Holy Scripture.
  • We believe the sacraments of Baptism & Communion seal our relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ through the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe all people are created in the image of God. 
  • We believe God loves all people.
  • We believe God is compassionately involved in the world. 
  • We believe God expects us to work for peace and justice for all.

Our mission is to make God known by growing as disciples of Jesus Christ, building a community of peace, and caring for the needs of others.  As Jesus did, we welcome people from all walks of life and points of view. All of us are in need of God's forgiveness and healing, and all of us deserve each other's understanding and support.
