Welcome to Faith’s website. Visit our site to stay updated on what’s happening.

Faith is a gathering of diverse individuals who believe that loving God, loving our neighbor, and loving each other is the essence of being the church.

We love God when we believe in Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, for forgiveness and life-transforming empowerment by God’s Spirit.

We love our neighbor when we identify with our fellow human beings in every suffering and difficulty and we share in that suffering with empathy and God’s message of hope, without judgment or condemnation.

We love each other when we support our sisters and brothers in Christ in our faith and our material needs as we are able.
