Our Values:

  • We believe the Grace of God is the most important message we have to proclaim and celebrate.
  • We believe the Spirit of God has always and is guiding us in our life together and moving us forward in relation to the community in which we are planted.
  • We believe God intends to redeem, reclaim, and remake all things through Jesus, and we want to be a part of that life-giving activity.
  • We believe God can touch every situation and circumstance of life with His love and mercy.
  • We believe God’s love is inclusive and community creating.
  • We believe we have been called not to build the church for ourselves but for those whom we do not yet know.
  • We practice Holy Baptism as a connection to the saving death and resurrection of Jesus and Holy Communion as a celebration of God’s promise and presence in our midst. At Living Lord, all are welcome at the Lord’s Table.
  • Our hope is to connect with people at the transition times of their lives.
  • We believe questions are good.
  • We live by faith, we move toward the future with hope, and we pray that God’s love is what people experience when we are with them.
  • We believe God is not finished with us and the world yet.
