  • To understand how all things are related to each other, and to learn how we may best serve our local community and our world community.

  • To celebrate with joy, the richness of ourselves and our religious community.

Hope is...


While theologically rooted in Christian faith, we have come to appreciate, value, and learn from the great teachings of the world’s other major religions. 


Theologically Diverse

We have come from many other denominations, bringing not only portions of the heritage and traditions we have experienced individually, but also our doubts and questions.


Inclusive and Tolerant

The extent to which elements of any particular faith tradition or lifestyle is incorporated into one’s private spiritual practices is a matter of personal choice.



A community committed to personal search for truth and meaning, unified by a shared search for spiritual growth and a broader perspective of life. Our worship and educational programs regularly include the texts and philosophies from other theological and secular sources.


Action Oriented 

Our Christian heritage is expressed most profoundly in our caring for our Church family and in our commitment to faith in action through community service on a local, national, and worldwide scale.
