Who We Are and What We Believe
Welcome Home! At the end of a long day, the trolley stops and you find a spiritual home at First Church where we are called to the ministry of reconciliation. We celebrate our human family’s diversity of race, ethnicity, age, national origin, faith history, economic status, ability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity/expression, and education.
We affirm that all people are created in the image of God and as beloved children of God, all are worthy of God’s love and grace. We recognize that there are differences among us, but believe that we can love alike even though we may not think alike. We invite all people to join us in our faith journey toward greater love, understanding, and mutual respect.
--In keeping with our history we practice a reformed and reforming approach to Christianity. We believe that following the path of Christ is based in a living and organic relationship with God. We believe that scripture is meant to be taken seriously but not literally. We seek community that is inclusive of all people including persons of other faith backgrounds. We strive for peace and justice for all people through our thoughts and actions.
--We believe that, if God can be manifest in three persons, then God can also be manifest in more than one gender. Therefore, we intentional in our use of inclusive language when referring to God and God's children.
