We are a Reconciling in Christ Congregation
Affirmation of Welcome:
God’s love is shared freely among us; it is to be shared by us each time we gather through natural, intentional conversation. God’s love leads us to faith. Faith helps us to make a difference in our lives and in the world.
Living out your faith is simply finding your gifts and using them as God knows best.
As a community of the people of God, we, the congregation at Saint Mark, recognize that the world is often an unloving place, a place of alienation and brokenness, causing great stress in the lives of members of our community and our congregation. Christ calls us to reconciliation and wholeness, and we are challenged by the Gospel to be agents of healing within our society irrespective of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or physical and emotional challenges.
We affirm with the apostle Paul that in Christ “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male or female’ (Galatians 3:28).

What We Believe
We know that laughter, joy and fun are vital to life!
We worship God, who loves us always.
God is the Father who creates us, the Son who saves us, and the Holy Spirit who guides us.
We believe that the Bible is the word of God. It is a story of God’s love that provides hope and peace for daily life. As such, it is a timeless message that brings joy and fulfillment. The heart of this message is God’s free and ever-flowing gift of grace in which we hear the good news that we are loved and forgiven.
We believe that loving God and loving others is the key to life’s joy! This love transforms lives, families, communities and gives hope and purpose.
We are a community of people who come together to live out this purpose – to connect people to God and one another.
All are welcome!
