what we believe

"Dwell in me as I dwell in you.

As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; dwell in my love."

Nothing can or will separate us from the love of God through Jesus.

We Are God's People

For years, God has been stirring in this community, silently and profoundly moving us toward creating

The Dwelling- the place where God and God's people meet.

We are hungry for communion and baptism - the physical reminder

of who God is and to whom we belong.

 

We long to have words of forgiveness spoken over us.

 

We want to use our gifts to glorify the God that we know intimately.

 

We have profound faith.

 

We embody the cross- where our brokenness is where we're

certain God meets us and turns our pain into life. 

Matthew 15: 4, 9.

We are a fully Federated Mission Community of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the Moravian Church in America. We believe that all are welcome at God's table. We practice open communion where anyone who wants to receive the gift of Christ's body and blood is invited to do so.

 

We know God's love to be fully inclusive and consider all variants of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, housing status, socio-economic status, country of origin, preference of language, addiction history and more, to be part of a persons unique and beloved identity as a Child of God. 

This community is for you.
