BELIEFS

 

One Church is a progressive non denominational church, a church for thinking people who are not afraid to wrestle with the difficult questions of faith.

As a nondenominational church we value wisdom from many different denominational traditions, respecting various views of the authority of the Bible, Baptism and Communion.

We are an open and affirming church. We do not believe that being gay is a sin.

We recognize that some affirmations of faith are more central than others. Some affirmations are essential, while well-meaning followers of Jesus hold various opinions on lesser matters. Therefore we ascribe to the time-tested rule of faith:

  • In the essentials, unity.
  • In the non-essentials, liberty.
  • In all things, charity.

One Church is a member of OPEN, a groundswell of churches, leaders, organizations, and people who are expressing a just and generous Christianity.
