A Statement of Faith: Here I Am!

We believe in the divinity,
within each creature, plant, & human being.

We believe that spark was placed there by the one we name God,
the one who created humanity in the divine image.

God manifests as Creator, Savior, Sustainer, and so much more than we can possibly imagine.

Through the life of Jesus, we learn about God’s grace-filled nature. We learn what it is to live consistent with the image in which we have been created.

Transformed through our relationship with the Christ, the Parent, and the Spirit our lives can never be the same again.

God calls us to live our lives differently. Throughout our lives, God gives us  gifts and skills unique to us.

We are called to listen for God’s voice. We are called to respond to that voice
with an enthusiastic, “Here I Am!”

We are called to use the gifts and skills bestowed to do justice, embrace love, and walk humbly with our God.
