This Church acknowledges as its sole head Jesus Christ, Son of God and Savior of men and women. We recognize two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord's Supper. We affirm the responsibility of the Church in each generation to make this historic faith its own.
Our Mission is to welcome All, follow Jesus Christ together, and live God's Word with compassionate service. (adopted 1/22/2012)

Mid Week Prayer
As we journey to Easter, God of Mystery, let us not go too quickly. There are stops along the way that we should not miss. Be with us as we do more than recall the betrayal, pain and suffering of Jesus. May we re-member, allowing ourselves to feel and know the struggles of that day and time which continue in this one. By aligning ourselves with the poor, the marginalized and the outsider, may their concerns become ours. May our love for these children of yours change the course of history, one life at a time. Journey with us toward the Resurrection, Holy One. Amen
