What We Believe

We believe in love, compassion, and kindness. We believe in a loving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, who came to save the world. We believe each person was created equal in the image of God and should be treated as such. We believe that everyone is deserving of God's love. We believe that the earth was created by God, and as caretakers, we are its stewards for the generations to come.

The church has a legacy of inclusion; men and women serve as bishops, priests, and deacons.
