Our church is theologically open. All men and women of faith in Jesus Christ are welcomed to participation and membership and invited to receive the sacraments. All ranks of the clergy are open to men and women, single and married. There are no barriers to the reception of the Sacraments on the basis not only of gender but also of age, race, marital status, ethnic background, lifestyle, or physical disability. We seek to embrace and to reconcile rather than to condemn and to alienate further those whose circumstances have caused them to experience rejection by churches and other religious groups.
