WHAT WE BELIEVE
Christ's Church is called by God, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, to be the very presence of Christ to our lost and broken world, so loved by God.
We fall within the mainstream of the Protestant faith. Our primary statement of faith is the Apostles' Creed.
"Our vision is to be recognized as a leader in making a difference in the lives of people. This comes from our passion to be the lens through which others can see Christ."
This is a practice of the congregation where we read, either privately or with others, the passage used as the basis for Sunday's worship. The ancient practice of Lectio Divina was practiced at one time by all Christians. It is a slow, contemplative praying of the Scriptures which enables the Bible, the Word of God, to become a means of union with God. The art of lectio divina begins with cultivating the ability to listen deeply, to hear "with the ear of our hearts". When we read the Scriptures we should try to imitate the prophet Elijah. We should allow ourselves to become women and men who are able to listen for the still, small voice of God (1 Kings 19:12); the "faint murmuring sound" which is God's word for us,God's voice touching our heart. This gentle listening is an "atunement" to the presence of God in that special part of God's creation which is the Scriptures.
