ABOUT US

Our Purpose

One Church is a safe community that reflects the inclusive love of God.

 

Our Values

One Church lives out our mission with our three core values:

  • Openness
  • Humility
  • Community

 

Our Beliefs

One Church is a progressive nondenominational 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 or a member of the LGBTQ+ community 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.

Verified

We are Verified Clear by Church Clarity, an organization that rates how clearly churches communicate their policies on LGTBQ+ individuals and on women in leadership.
