We believe that we all need God's unconditional love and grace, that all are of worth and all are welcome, and that no person should be denied this. All are welcome here with open arms, minds, hearts, and souls. We are all children of God! We celebrate the diversity of human life and believe in the respect and dignity of everyone. We value the diversity of economic status, social class, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental ability, cultural identity, and ethnicity. We promote the full inclusion of all people to a place where they can share in community without fear.

Our ministry is to each day try to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ and share in this journey with everyone. Come and be welcomed!
