Continuing the work of Jesus

Continuing the work of Jesus

Continuing the work of Jesus

Jesus is our leader, teacher, and savior. Our creed is to do what He did. We are not always sure what that entails, but our effort is always in that direction. Our witness tends to be conveyed more by actions than by words.

Peacefully

Peacefully

Peacefully

Our living is peaceful living. We strive to create reconciliation in the world, an end to violence and war, an establishment of justice. We do our best to repair the ravages that have been wrought on our environment and on our fellow human beings.

Simply

Simply

Simply

We endeavor to resist the "idolatry of things" and free ourselves of accumulation, the better to work in love and peace. Historically, our traditions have used words like nonconformity, plainness, and simplicity to indicate this commitment.

Together

Together

Together

We worship, grow spiritually, and act in community. We study the Bible together, modestly striving to discern the will of God for us. This togetherness includes an active effort to work with those of different faiths in building bridges of understanding.

Welcoming Statement

We at Shalom Community Church strive to fulfill a vision of shalom, to embody the love, compassion and justice of Jesus in our personal and community journeys. Without exception, all who share this vision are welcome to participate in the full life of the church. We value the creative tension and the strength that result from sharing differences in beliefs within the community and we are committed to pilgrimage simply, peacefully, together.
