The Christian faith is about a relationship with the living God, made possible through the life and death of Jesus. Grounded in God’s promises of acceptance and love, we open up to a life of bold trust in God and joyful, generous service to others in our daily lives.
Our faith does not close our minds to the world nor our hearts to others. We grow in grace as we allow the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to continually mold and shape us. We listen to the witness of others and watch to see where the wind of the spirit is blowing around us. Faith opens a place for engaging with others in conversation, for seeking truth together, for asking questions, and speaking and acting in love.
