We are inclusive
We are an inclusive Christian community that believes God’s love includes everyone, unconditionally. As an LGBTQ plus affirming community, we welcome the full participation of all persons inclusive of age, gender-identity, sexual orientation, differing abilities, ethnicity or economic circumstance.
Whoever you are, whomever you love, and whatever stage you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
We are progressive
We live out of a theological vision that encourages fresh ways of understanding the Christian story; where the Bible is taken seriously, but not literally; where questions and commitments are intertwined; where you do not have to park your mind at the door of the church; where we seek to be in a dialogue with our culture and science.
We are committed to justice
Our faith inspires us to work for change – living and doing the work of compassion, peace and justice.
We work towards social justice both in our own city and in the world: in our Downtown Eastside to the hillsides of Guatemala; with those living with mental illness who find themselves on the street; and with refugees seeking a new beginning. We set aside time and resources to address areas in our city and world that need love, attention and compassion.
We are passionate about living changed lives
Our faith touches our hearts as well as our heads, and makes a real difference in how we live; we seek to become faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. Faith is not just a set of beliefs here, but it is about exploring, asking questions and putting your beliefs into action and service to the world. We believe a better world is possible by living out our faith.
