Mission Statement

 

"By the grace of God, we seek to love God and to serve humanity as Christ did."

 

At our best...

 

We embrace God's grace

 

 

 

We follow three simple rules:

 

 

1.  Do no harm by thought, word, or action

2.  Do all the good you can in building up the body of Christ in loving

     and serving others

3.  Follow the spiritual practices of God including communion,

     reading the Bible, praying, and good works/helping others

 

We are a connected community with Christ as the head of the church.  By the

power of the Holy Spirit, we learn how to be Christ, in and for the world.

 

We are devoted to social holiness.
