We can fundamentally say this: our collective faith BEGINS with an experience of the Sacred (seen by many as God or a “Higher Power”) as our source of life. One way this source of life was profoundly manifest in our world is through the journey of a man named Jesus of Nazareth. This manifestation is also visible in the lives of many other men and women throughout history who embody the timeless essence of truth and love. That same extraordinary living presence persists today through the transforming activity of a unifying Spirit dwelling both within us and among us. In other words, this life is bigger than what we can tangibly see and experience.
“We can fundamentally say this: our collective faith BEGINS with an experience of the Sacred (seen by many as God or a “Higher Power”) as our source of life.”
The ways in which we otherwise approach the Sacred or God or “Higher Power” (bound and limited by our human constructs of words & concepts) is part of our ongoing journey of faith. While we believe that various doctrinal belief systems (sometimes rivaling and contradicting one another) have value, our focus is on asking better life and faith questions as we attempt to make sense of it all, rather than insisting on a one-size-fits-all dogma. Still, we utilize sound teachings to help illuminate our path. We also rely on what are called “Sacraments” (see the FAQs under the “About” tab), the Bible, and other wisdom to help form/deepen our faith identity. As mutual understandings, passions, and convictions emerge, we put faith into action to meet the needs of the world around us.
