Affirmation of Welcome

As of community of people of God, we are called to minister to all people of our world, knowing that the world is often an unloving place.  Our world is a place of alienation and brokenness. Christ calls us to reconciliation of healing within our society.

We affirm with the apostle Paul that in Christ "there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female" (Galatians 3:28).  Christ has made us one.  We acknowledge this reconciliation extends to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
