Open and Affirming

OandAAs a community of faith, we take seriously the biblical call to love God and our neighbors as ourselves, and recognize that although we are many members, we are one.

  • We celebrate the uniqueness of everyone.
  • We  rejoice in our diversity of views and understandings of our shared faith.
  •  We affirm relationships based on love, commitment and mutual respect.
  • As is stated in our by-laws, we strive for righteousness, justice and peace.

It is with this spirit and the love of God that we openly welcome all persons, inclusive of every race, ethnicity, class, age, gender, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation and inclusive of any others, to journey with us as we move forward with the work of this church in the world.
