Embracing the gifts of diversity and affirming the dignity and worth of each person, we extend a welcome to persons –
of every race, ethnic heritage, and nationality,
of every sex, gender identity, expression, and sexual orientation,
of every age,
of every physical and mental ability,
of various marital and familial statuses,
of various economic statuses or financial situations,
of different faiths or without faith.
We believe God calls us to create a sacred, safe, and inclusive space where all are loved as Christ loved them.
