Basic Beliefs

Jesus Christ is at the center of our faith and beliefs. Our Basic Beliefs are not the last word, but an invitation to further explore your discipleship.

Sacraments

The sacraments embody God’s grace and peace and lead to transformation of our lives and communities. The sacraments shape our identity and community life as followers of Jesus Christ. As we experience the blessings available through sacraments, we are empowered to share the peace of Jesus Christ and fulfill our mission in the world.

  • Receive God’s gifts
  • Respond faithfully

  • Save wisely
  • Spend responsibly
