So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
As people of faith, we are called to love one another as God loves us, freely and unconditionally. We further believe that diversity enriches our faith community.
We honor human relationships that are based on love, responsibility, mutual respect, trust and fidelity.
We embrace each person's uniqueness.
We celebrate that this congregation has been a welcoming community of faith and now wish to make our welcome explicit for all.
We invite people of every race, nationality, culture, ethnic background, age, gender expression or identity, sexual orientation, marital status, family configuration, ability, economic circumstance, and spiritual or religious tradition to join in the full life and ministry of the church and to share its joys, privileges and responsibilities.
We commit ourselves to the spiritual challenge and ongoing work of this affirmation in this church and in the world, knowing that as disciples of Jesus, we are called to continuous learning, transformation, and witness.
Humbly and prayerfully we enter into this covenant with one another, with the hope of guidance from the Holy Spirit, trusting in God's grace.
