“What We Believe Statement”

 

GOD IS LOVE AND LOVE IS FOR EVERYONE

It is impossible to love each other without a sense of mutual (equal) worth and respect for each other.

Love worketh no ill to a neighbor: Therefore love is fulfilling of the law.

(ESV) 20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. (ESV)

It is impossible to love God, whom we’ve never seen and hate our brothers and sisters who we see every day.

God is neither male nor female, God is spirit and spirit has no gender.

LIBERATION THEOLOGY FOR ALL, A THEOLOGY THAT FREES THE OPPRESSED:

Is not a male dominated hierarchy

Is not oppressive to women

Is not just European in scope

Must relate to People of Color and their various cultures around the world

Is not oppressive to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Heterosexual and Transgender people

Allows us to think and discern through human reason and experience

Is not oppressive to Native Americans or their spirituality, nor any other oppressive use of scripture

We believe in the teachings of Jesus but we DO NOT dismiss all other faiths and beliefs as wrong or second to our way of believing.

GOD IS GREATER THAN ANY RELIGION, DENOMINATION, OR SCHOOL OF THOUGHT

God is spirit, alive and at work in the Muslim Mosque, the Jewish Synagogue, the Christian Church, and the Tribal Ritual. God is everywhere present.

We believe the Bible and all great spiritual writings or guides must be read taking into consideration the time of the writing, the traditions practiced at that time and the fact that we have the right to question and examine all interpretation.

A PERSON’S BELIEF SYSTEM:

MUST be supportive of HEALTHY SELF ACCEPTANCE

MUST support SPIRITUAL GROWTH

MUST encourage PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, and MENTAL HEALTH

Enlightenment And Revelation Are Continuous And Did Not Stop With The Bible Writers
