Leadership

The ministry of all believers drives our congregation and denomination.  Both ministers and la persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth.  We affirm the priesthood of all believers, rejoicing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit – which include the gift of leadership – that god has given for the common good.

Disciples are called together around belief in Jesus Christ.  Persons are free to follow their consciences guided by the Bible, the Holy Spirit, study and prayer, and re expected to extend that freedom to others.  We hold the centrality of scripture, recognizing that each person has the freedom – and the responsibility – to study God’s Word within the community of the church.

All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to find ways to work together in showing God’s love through witness and service.  We hear a special calling to make visible the unity of all Christians.  In our diversity we belong to one another because we commonly belong to Christ.       W: p
