Brookside & Trinity UMC 

WHO WE ARE

WE BELIEVE IN THE TRUINE GOD:

Creator, resurrected Christ, the sole Head of the church, and the Holy Spirit, who guides and brings about the creative and redemptive work of God in the world.

WE BELIEVE THAT EACH PERSON IS UNIQUE AND VALUABLE.

 It is the will of God that every person belong to a family of faith where they have a strong sense of being valued and loved.  God has uniquely made you and designed you for a purpose.  We believe the best place to discover and live out that purpose is in the Family of God as experienced in Christ's Church.  We would love to be your church family!

WE BELIEVE THAT EACH PERSON IS ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

and that each of us is at a different stage of that journey.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE PRESISTENT SEARCH FOR GOD PRODUCES AN AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD,

engendering love, strengthening faith, dissolving guilt, and giving life purpose and direction.

WE BELIEVE THAT ALL OF THE BAPTIZED 'BELONG BODY AND SOUL TO OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.'

No matter who – no matter what – no matter where we are on life's journey – notwithstanding race, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, class or creed – we all belong to God and to one worldwide community of faith. All persons baptized – past, present and future – are connected to each other and to God through the sacrament of baptism. We baptize during worship when the community is present because baptism includes the community's promise of 'love, support and care' for the baptized – and we promise that we won't take it back – no matter where your journey leads you.

WE BELIEVE THAT GOD CALLS US TO BE SERVANTS IN THE SERVICE OF OTHERS

and to be good stewards of the earth's resources. 'To believe is to care; to care is to do.'
