Are you a Church?

It depends on what you mean by "church". We're not trying to be coy, but we are sensitive about language and what we are communicating. If by "church" you mean a winsome band of mostly Jesus-followers, gathering together to encourage one another, connect with God, and bless the world around them...then yes, we're totally a church. (Or at least we aspire to be on our best days. Nobody's perfect.) But if "church" means pipe organs, gender inequality, a disdain for science, or a propensity to try to tell you how to think, then it's not a good description for what we're doing (though we honestly have nothing against pipe organs!). That's why we often opt for calling ourselves a "Community of Faith", because, honestly, we are.

No matter who – no matter what – no matter where we are on life’s journey – notwithstanding race, gender, sexual orientation, class or creed – we all are beloved of God, and we are dedicated to serve one another. When you join us, you have our community’s promise of ‘love, support and care’  – and we promise that we won’t take it back – no matter where your journey leads you.
