Who is Jesus?
     Jesus is the founder of the church, whose gospel has grasped our lives as the very word of God, comforting, challenging, and directing us, like nothing in and of this world, in redeeming ways. 

What is the Church?
     The church is a way of being together, organized to bring the redeeming work of Jesus Christ to bear on all of life, for the sake of the future that God is calling into being and calling us to serve. 

What is Redemption?
     Redemption is the event of God’s loving embrace, fitting us to serve a better tomorrow by transforming human ambiguity, anxiety, resentment, and fear, into a faith, hope, love, and courage that liberate us from destructive and self-destructive ways. 

What is Service?
     Service is prayerfully considered response to Jesus’s command that we should love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves.
