Beliefs and Purpose

Beliefs: “What we believe” is a loaded statement.  For many, visiting this section of a church website is about one of two questions: ‘Do they believe what I believe?’ or ‘Is this a safe place for me to worship and be my true self?’

Our beliefs are as diverse as the gathering of people who worship here.  We center ourselves around the love and grace of Jesus.  We anchor our discussions in the Bible, which is a wonderful but complex resource.  We believe the Bible is the truth in what it intends to teach us (but we humbly admit that sometimes we miss what it really intends to teach us.)

This is a safe, inclusive place that might not have all the answers; but it is a place to live into the deeper questions of faith and life.

Our Mission: To follow in the way of Jesus by doing justice, loving kindness, and walking humbly with God. (Micah 6:8)

Our Vision: Our vision is articulated in our Strategic Plan. The plan focuses on these five goals:

  • Establish meaningful relationships among each other and those we encounter
  • Utilize assets and gifts, including facilities and property, to serve the needs of others
  • Achieve financial stability
  • Empower faithful engagement with social and faith topics
  • Eliminate barriers to growth

In Depth:

As a Reformed Congregation, we also share and use confessions of faith and creeds to more deeply understand the relationship between God, and God’s people.

As tools of understanding, we use the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. We also recognize the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, and the Canons of Dordt, and the Confession of Belhar.

Affiliation:

The Comrcaimagemunity is a ministry of the Reformed Church in America. We seek to be “Reformed and always reforming,” earnestly seeking to know the mind of Christ as we strive to be faithful in a changing, complex, and often troubled world.
