Key Beliefs and Practices

1. We affirm Jesus as the Christ, the Lord and Savior of the world, welcoming all persons who respect the life and teachings of Jesus, whatever their individual beliefs.

2. We esteem The Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God and ultimate guide for spiritual growth. We value and appreciate various translations and interpretations, as well as other texts and viewpoints without requiring uniformity of belief.

3. We practice open communion, for it is Jesus who invites all to share a common table where we may gather to remember him. 

4. We practice water baptism by immersion for new believers and honor other forms of baptism. We baptize only consenting adults and children who can understand the meaning and purpose of baptism.
