Ecumenical

We believe that Jesus the Christ clearly willed that the Church be one, just as He and the Father are One a mystery, yet a reality. We believe that the Holy Spirit is working out complete unity within the Body of Christ. Our members come from all kinds of backgrounds, and we cooperate with full interest and goodwill in the growing unity and inclusivity of the Church.

Catholic

We are Communities of Faith for all people united through Baptism and The Eucharist. Our Faith unites us with the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church throughout the spans of space and time. We accept the theology taught by the creedal statements of the Ecumenical Councils of the fourth and fifth centuries and professed by the Church throughout the ages.

Evangelical

We proclaim the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ and His Love for all people regardless of race, creed, social status or sexual orientation. We believe this Gospel is meant for all persons without exception, and we strive individually and corporately to inform our sisters and brothers of God’s saving Love. The Truth we proclaim is based in Scripture, Tradition and Reason.

Liturgical

We believe that the Church has been guided by the Holy Spirit in developing a meaningful public worship service of sacrifice, praise, and prayer. Founded upon the Sacraments instituted by our Lord, and evolving through the ages, this liturgy has a timeless dimension that unites the worship of all God’s people and a dynamic dimension that brings us in touch with the active, vital, Life-giving Power of the Holy Spirit. The focus of our Mass is the Eucharist.
