Community of the Savior is built around three core affirmations. If you find yourself drawn to what you see, let that be your cordial invitation to visit Community of the Savior!
Evangelical and Catholic
We are a community of believers that seeks continually to be formed by the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that all human life is in need of the healing and saving grace that is available to all through the ministry of Christ on behalf of the whole world. We joyfully affirm the centrality of the Christian scriptures as the faithful and authoritative guide for Christian faith and life. As disciples of Jesus, we believe that we are called to live like Jesus in both personal and corporate holiness. With gratitude, we seek to participate in God’s mission in the world by offering the welcome of God’s grace to others.
Communal and Diverse
We are a community of believers that aspires to take seriously the implications of humanity’s creation in the image of God. As image bearers of the Triune God, and as those who are being renewed in God’s image through the restoring work of Christ, we believe that the church must be distinctively communal. We seek to be a community of radical love that embraces others in the name of Jesus. As Spirit-directed members of the Body of Christ, we commit ourselves to consensus as the normal process of decision making in the community. We affirm that both women and men are called to roles of service and leadership in the church and home.
Missional and Prophetic
We are a community of believers committed to tangible love as the central expression of Christian faithfulness. We believe that Jesus came as a loving servant and calls his followers to love the world in his name. As those who believe in the gospel’s power to transform both individuals and societies, we seek to involve ourselves in holistic ministries of evangelism and social transformation, locally and globally. Believing that Christians are called to be faithful stewards of all of God’s gifts, we seek to commit ourselves to a biblical vision of the care of creation, the love of all people, and the responsibilities of material possessions.
