We honour, embrace, and remain rooted to the historic Christian creeds as reflected in both the Nicene and Apostle's creeds.Priestly and Prophetic:
We value the role of the prophet who engages in a perpetual and creative struggle with social constructs that marginalize and exclude, and the priest who engages in liturgy, the ministry of sacraments, along with leadership and administration.
We value the tension between the mystical work of the Spirit, the transcendent source of God's Word and the relevant, imminent implications of this work and this Word in our lives, personally, and in our world.
We value the tension created between Liberal and Evangelical Christianity. We accept and engage without denunciation all forms of knowledge and scholarship with gracious and humble spirits, while maintaining clear convictions regarding the deity of Christ, the authority of scripture, and God's redemptive plan for humankind.
Accepting that we all are prone to both error and sin, we seek to look directly and unflinchingly upon the human condition with grace, art, humour and truthfulness.

2 Corinthians 5:18-20 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself... Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God.
