A Faith Community that Reaches Out From the Heart

WHAT IS PROGRESSIVE CHRISTIANITY

"New voices celebrating a lively, open-minded, and open-hearted Christianity are emerging at the grass roots across America.  Comfortable with their own faith, they also insist that they are not better than Jews or Muslims.  In contrast to the old liberals of the 1960s and 1970s, these new voices are just as interested in spirituality as they are in justice.  With much more confidence than Christians of the mid-twentieth century, this new momentum strongly affirms both intellectual analysis and emotional expression of one's own faith."

At Lord of the Mountains, we embrace an approach to Christianity that is inclusive, innovative and informed as outlined in our Mission Statement.  As progressive Christians, we embrace certain basic principles:

 

Spiritual Vitality - seeking an approach to God through the life and teachings of Jesus
and expressed through meditation, song, prayer, communion, art and lively worship.

Intellectual Integrity - recognizing religion and science can be compatible
when addressed with intellectual rigor.

Religious Validity - accepting that there are many roads to
God and we must respect all religions.

Inclusiveness - God's grace requires the acceptance of all regardless
of race, age, socio-economic status, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Social Justice - striving for peace and justice among all people,

recognizing and protecting the integrity of all God's people.

 

We believe there is more grace to be found in the search for understanding than dogmatic certainty,
more value in questioning than in absolutes.  We welcome all to join us in our spiritual home and community at Lord of the Mountains.
