We are brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.
We have radical roots and a history as self-motivated spiritual people: we think for ourselves and recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything.
We need not think alike to love alike. We are people of many beliefs and backgrounds: people with a religious background, people with none, people who believe in a God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be.
On the forefront of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer inclusion for more than 40 years, we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
We welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes. Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith. Get involved!
We nurture spiritual community, honor diversity, and advocate for social justice.
Our church is where:
- There is a safe place to explore deeper meanings together and, we consider, with love, all ideas
- We find, with respect and open minds, shared humanity amidst our differences
- Through education, partnership, and action, we empower the betterment of individuals, our community, and the world.
We build our church on a foundation of love and covenant with one another to create a welcoming and trusting safe community for all,
To be open, honest, and compassionate to all and look for the good intentions of others,
Avoid gossip and speak directly to one another to resolve any differences,
To speak kindly, respectfully, and compassionately while listening carefully to all viewpoints,
Explore and accept personal responsibility in conflict, being able to forgive and accept forgiveness,
Participating with our community where there is common ground, serving with compassion and commitment,
Approaching visitors with respect, open hearts and minds, embracing everyone.
We commit to this covenant as a means of supporting and living the 8 Principles.
