OUR BELIEFS

Our Beliefs

We are a proud Reconciling Church, which means that our church embraces and honors the commitment to achieving LGBTQIA+ justice and full inclusion in the life and ministry of the United Methodist Church and beyond, both in policy and in practice. God calls each of us into relationship and ministry, no exceptions.

In the United Methodist Church, we celebrate two sacraments -- the sacrament of Holy Communion and the sacrament of Holy Baptism.

Both of our sacraments are open to all.

The sacrament of Holy Baptism celebrates and recognizes God's eternal welcome. Through water and the Holy Spirit, we celebrate God's promise of grace. We welcome the newly baptized infant, child or adult into the family of faith, renewing our promise to follow Jesus in faith and love.

The sacrament of Holy Communion celebrates and remembers God's eternal grace. Sharing a common table, as Jesus did with his disciples, we consecrate the elements of grain and grape, and give thanks for forgiveness, freely given. We join in this sacramental meal in community, given for each of us through God's love.

We see these sacraments as a means of grace, a way to experience the presence and love of God for all people.
