A warm, embracing faith community, where everyone is welcomed. valued, respected and viewed as a member of God's family. A place where faith/spiritual development and enrichment is experienced by all. A place that connects faith and reason. A community that epitomizes the words of Martin Luther, when he described the church as a place of "conversation and consolation of the faithful." A place/community that encourages thought, reasoning, and expression of faith from the perspective and experience of each member that provides a spectrum and depth of expressions that invokes discovery and faith development in each member. Unity is found in the body of Christ and not in everyone believing or holding the same theological expression/viewpoint.
