What We Believe:

  • What unites us as children of God is greater than the theological differences that separate us.
  • We are called by Christ to be on this journey together.
  • We are called to attend to not just what Jesus died for, but what he lived for.
  • Centuries of misunderstandings and violence can be best undone by listening to each other and serving the world side by side.
  • The best theologies emerge when we take each other’s stories seriously.
  • We haven’t read the Bible correctly if it doesn’t impel us to go out to love and serve our neighbor.
  • Jesus invites personal and cultural transformation into God’s non-violence, inclusion, healing, and wholeness.
