Who We Are

Vision 2020

Growing people of faith who...
…live in Jesus,   love one another,    and bear abundant fruit


We live in Jesus  by growing deeper lives of whole-hearted faithfulness to the gospel that are characterized by:
Passionate worship (to the praise of God’s glory) ~
Worship is ‘ascribing to God the glory due his name’ (Ps. 96), therefore our worship is centered upon the declaration that “Jesus is Lord,” and the expectation that through a radical hospitality to God we will experience the purpose, presence and power of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


Intentional spiritual formation (into Christ-likeness) ~ 
All followers of Christ are called to become ‘mature in Christ,’ therefore we will seek to become more Christ-like in our character and lifestyles.



We Love One Another (and all others) by cultivating
Extravagant welcome (for all) ~ 
The image of God is in everyone, therefore we will welcome and accept everyone because of their inherent dignity and worth as image-bearers of God.


Vibrant relationships (within the body of Christ) ~ 
As followers of Christ we are called to become a ‘community in Christ, walking together with Christ,’ therefore we will intentionally nurture a congregational culture of deep-spirited friendship with each other and God.


We Bear Abundant Fruit…that renews our city and world by embodying
Abundant giving (that is self-sacrificing) ~ 
The gospel good news that has been given to us has the power to make all things new, therefore we will wholeheartedly and faithfully ‘live in the name of Jesus,’ giving our lives, resources and talents to prosper the creative and redemptive work of the Kingdom of God both locally and globally.


Risk-taking service (with our gifts) ~ 
All followers of Christ are called to serve as he served, therefore we will love and serve all others with acts of creative goodness that promote justice, create beauty and make peace.

United Church of Christ Statement of Faith in the form of a Doxology


We believe in you, O God, Eternal Spirit, God of our Savior Jesus Christ and our God, and to your deeds we testify:

You call the worlds into being, create persons in your own image,and set before each one the ways of life and death.

You seek in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.

You judge people and nations by your righteous will declared through prophets and apostles.

In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Savior, you have come to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the world to yourself.

You bestow upon us your Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ, binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races.

You call us into your church to accept the cost and joy of discipleship, to be your servants in the service of others, to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil,to share in Christ's baptism and eat at his table, to join him in his passion and victory.

You promise to all who trust you forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace, your presence in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in your realm which has no end.

Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto you.
