What We Believe
From before the foundation of the world
I loved you, God says. I chose you, I choose you.
I call you to be the unique person you are.
I will hold you together from the inside
in the face of every external pressure.
Come. Enter my covenant community in Christ:
giving honor to me, devotion to my Reign,
care for creation, and love to all people.
But we get distracted. We rebel against our Maker.
We turn in on ourselves; turn our backs on others.
We fail to live up to the divine image within us.
How can I give you up? cries the God of the cross.
How shall we thank you, Lord, for such undeserved grace?
God says: Pay to your neighbor what you owe to me.
And Jesus says, simply and profoundly: Follow me.
