All are Welcome
As an "Open and Affirming" congregation we, the members of The Park Church, embrace people of every ethnic origin, race, class, age, ability, gender and sexual orientation. We welcome into Christian worship, membership, leadership, friendship, and employment all who covenant with us to seek God's truth and to follow Christ's example.
We believe in extravagant welcome.
This is why we insist that God's communion table is open, not closed, and God's gift and claim in baptism are irrevocable.
We advocate justice for all.
Our congregations extend hospitality as a sign of God's inclusive love.
We teach that evangelism — offering bread to those in search of it — is God's mission.
Our perspective is global, not provincial. We work with — not against — people of other faiths.
Because God is still speaking,
