Our Mission Statement:

We are a loving and diverse faith-based community that comes from a variety of traditions. We gather in Christ's name to seek to do God's will and bring love and grace into the world. We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for spiritual healing and growth for all who wish to join us. We offer social action, support, and education to the greater community. An integral part of our mission is to break down barriers of prejudice and misunderstanding while offering a welcoming hand to all who seek inclusion.

We are a church that offers all seven sacraments for all people: Baptism, Marriage Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, Confirmation, Holy Orders and Anointing of those who are dying. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, sex or sexual orientation, social status or any other 'difference' between people.
