We see ourselves as a welcoming community of faith through which God's light shines like a beacon to guide both new comers and long time members on our Christian journey. The tall landmark spire points to the Higher Power we call God and to a wide view of the surrounding community. When we travel it welcomes us home, stirring feelings of warmth and fellowship and encouraging our faith. In the church we feel the strength of our loving God through prayer and the compassion of our congregation as our souls are healed and our spirits are uplifted.
We are a family in Christ, gathering in congregational worship and in small supportive groups to seek divine understanding inspired by the Bible. In this safe haven we grow and share the Good News of God's love. Past generations and new realizations shape our beliefs and lead us to serve as role models and guides to one another and for our youth. As members and friends of a church born in the Great Awakening tradition of "New Lights," people are free here to explore and express their unique faith. We learn to repent, forgive, and maintain tolerance believing that we may have different perspectives and still be one in the Spirit.
As Christians we live by our faith in action. We listen to the teachings of Jesus and apply them to our times. The Holy Spirit empowers us to use our talents as they are revealed to us. Through a variety of committees, programs, and individual action, we serve to make the world a better place. We extend our hands in friendship, reaching out to ease the burdens of our neighbors. Divine love is spread by our deliberate and spontaneous acts of kindness. We work for positive changes in our own society and in the global community seeking justice, peace, and harmony. God is still speaking and we are listening.
