A Safe Place for ALL to Experience the Divine
At Faithbridge Presbyterian Church, we believe every person is created in the image of God and, therefore, has intrinsic value. We recognize that there are systems in place within the United States that run counter to this claim. For far too long, black lives in particular have been devalued by much of our society. The evils of systemic racism have claimed too many lives. We condemn these evils and stand with our Stated Clerk, the Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson II, in pursuing an ethic of love. For Dr. Nelson’s full statement, please see the link below…
As a body still in its teenage years, we, like all teenagers, are in the process of defining ourselves. There are days we get this right; other days, we struggle. We celebrate both, but celebrate the struggle a bit more, as the lessons learned from the struggles have reminded us of who and Whose we are.
Central to our identity is a desire to provide a safe place for all to experience the Divine. We recognize this to be vital, as safe places seem increasingly rare in today’s time. As a body, we are unashamedly Christian. We believe our Christian identity calls us build bridges, not walls. Thus, our nature is to welcome all people, regardless of tribe. We do so believing that, in being together, freely ourselves, we all will experience something of the Divine.
There are practices that are distinct to all bodies; Faithbridge is no exception. Our practices are centered in a particular definition of a family, as we, for many, have become “family by choice.” As a family, we to do five things together: worship, serve, study, eat, and play together.
Words cannot fully describe a body’s identity. Our hope is that these would serve as a vehicle that invites people to experience more. Please join us – we’d love to share the Journey with you!
