Relationship with Christ

Bringing Individuals and the Congregation into a Greater Harmony with God with a New Sense of Faith, Love, and Hope

fotolia christ webWe trust and glorify God. We are aware of the nature and presence of God within the congregation. Because of God’s empowering presence, we seek to find out what God wants. We know that God is working in the lives of members and in the life of our congregation.

In words and spirit, we acknowledge Jesus Christ our Chief Elder as head of the church, are focused on Him as Savior and Lord, and submit to his will in doctrine and deed.

We have a high level of enthusiasm for Christ and a genuine sense of the need for Christ in our lives and in our congregation. We remember who Jesus is, understand conversion and the Good News, and are loyal to Him. We belong to an infinite and eternal Spirit, respect spiritual authority, and are energized by our active and growing faith. We recognize the importance of God’s Word in our lives and actively seek spiritual formation and growth. As a congregation, we ensure that spiritual growth opportunities exist. We remember and practice the tenets of our faith as given in the Bible, the Ground of the Unity, and the Covenant for Christian Living.
