Our Basic Beliefs at Saint Andrew
We stand solidly in the Christian Faith where each person has a unique and valuable perspective of God’s word, purpose, and plan.
We challenge each other by sharing these understandings. Saint Andrew is a place to grow spiritually, to ask questions, and to seek answers together.
We celebrate communion weekly, and all who believe in Christ are invited to participate.
We affirm the gifts of ministry in all persons.
We welcome and affirm all children of God of any color, class, sexual orientation, age, gender, ability or thought.
We seek Christian unity, not uniformity, as we work cooperatively with all of God’s people for peace and wholeness in the world.
