What We Believe

Jesus Christ is the light of our lives and the light of this world.  Through Christ, we experience a new life – both on this side of death and beyond it.  We believe that this gift of Christ is a generous gift of a loving God and not the result of how we are, what we do or even how fervently we believe.

We affirm that we are not called to this new life independently, but that we are called to community of believers where we learn to lean on, listen to and hold each other accountable. You will notice a organizational structure that lacks bishops or levels of office. Instead, we elect our leadership and then prayerfully ordain them for tasks to which they feel called.  In worship you will hear us speak of God as Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, ancient language that affirms the depth and breath of God. You will see us share in time-honored sacraments of communion and baptism.

Church is changing. Denominational structures are shifting.  Still, Presbyterians in the 21st century have a vision of ministry that is vibrant, inviting, and reflects the love and justice of God. As we witness to the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout the world, Presbyterians engage in mission activities, work to alleviate hunger, respond to disasters, preach the gospel, heal the sick, educate new generations for the future, and seek to be good stewards of all of God’s gifts in creation.
