So much more than just a church.
We believe that everything we do, especially worship, ought to play a part in our liberation.
At Beloved Community, worship is not a spectator event. You are an active participant in the worship experience. That means more than just saying "AMEN". Every Sunday we take time to talk in small groups about what we have heard and experienced in worship, and how we will apply it to our lives.
We believe the church can be and should be a healing place where people can come to be loved and accepted as they are.
You don't have to change for God to love you. You don't have to change to belong to our family. So come as you are. Seriously, wear what you want and be who you are. No pressure to dress a certain way or be a certain way. All we care about is that you're comfortable. At Beloved Community Church, everyone is truly welcomed and celebrated. We are an open and affirming affiliate of the United Church of Christ and we welcome anyone who wants to worship with us - especially those society has pushed to the margins.
We believe God is always on the side of the oppressed in the struggle for liberation.
For us this means God is on the side of Black people in the United States and around the world in their struggle against institutional and systemic racism.
We believe the church can and should be a place to strategize.
We should do more than just come to worship. We should plan how we can work together to make sure God's love and justice is at work in the world, and not just something that we talk about.
