† Freedom of thought and personal responsibility of faith. (No creed on church dogma) Everyone's opinion is valued and cherished.
† Welcoming and accepting of all people into worship. (regardless of religion, heritage, past experience, age, race or ethnic background)
† Communion open to everyone and all ages.
† Each congregation is free to govern themselves, select their own pastor and organize their work as they see fit.
† One's faith must be matched with everyday actions and decisions. We welcome strangers, feed the hungry, cloth the naked, work for justice, and oppose evil.
† Active faith requires disciplined study and education. So we value: Sunday School for all ages, Confirmation studies, and the support of our Colleges and Seminaries.
