As a community of faith, we believe that God sent us God’s own beloved Son, Jesus, the Christ, who suffered, died, and rose from the dead, to offer us the gift of eternal life. As the Anointed of God, Jesus knows God at first hand and sees God, and is for that reason the true mediator between God and us. His human vision of the divine reality is the source of light for everyone so we strive to follow Jesus’ teachings in our lives: to love God and all God has created, to practice forgiveness and mercy, to care for the poor and helpless. We work for peace and justice in our world, attempting to make the Kingdom more visible.
