Statement of Welcome and Affirmation
Adopted July 2016

In the name of Christ, we welcome you to our community and invite you to journey with us as we seek to follow Jesus together. As an Anabaptist congregation, we believe the essence of the Bible is embodied in Jesus Christ, the living, acting Word of God, and Christ is our authority. Christ calls us to love one another unconditionally just as Christ loves us: without judgment, condemnation, or conformity.  We believe that practicing unconditional love calls us to welcome those who have been marginalized, and we are especially concerned for the protection of the most vulnerable in all walks of life. All who wish to meet the Living Christ are welcome to worship with us and participate fully in congregational life. As a congregation of God’s people, we desire to reflect the diversity of the human family, including the diversity of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, economic status, marital status, physical and mental ability, and education. We therefore have chosen to become a welcoming and affirming congregation affiliated with the Supportive Communities Network of the Brethren Mennonite Council for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Interests. We trust that following Christ faithfully—while patiently agreeing and disagreeing in love—will call for ongoing communal discernment and self-reflection that urges us to grow beyond the consumerism, militarism, racism, sexism, and other destructive forces of our culture that marginalize people. We welcome you to experience God’s love and be a light in the world with us.
