Our Mission

We are a Diverse People United in our Faith AND Liberated by the LOVE OF GOD!

We, the people of the Reformed Catholic Church; Transformed by Jesus Christ through Baptism; Empowered by the Holy Spirit; Nourished by the Eucharist; United in our faith; Liberated by the love of God; Commit ourselves to be God's welcoming heart of mercy, God’s inclusive arms of love, and God's hands of justice and healing to all people who seek God through Jesus Christ.


WE RECLAIM

We reclaim Jesus Christ, the Bible and the Church.  We include everyone in our ministry of Jesus Christ because that is what Jesus would do.  We read the scriptures through the lens of the present and from a multicultural point-of-view.  We celebrate the sacraments with anyone who wishes to receive them, because these are the gifts of God for the people of God.


WE REFORM

We reform our understanding of who qualifies for the sacraments by opening them to all who seek God.  We believe that it is God who calls us into a reconciled relationship, Jesus who seeks to meet us at the altar and anoint us, and the Holy Spirit who inspires us to marry, to seek confirmation, to respond to the call to ministry, and who washes us in the waters of baptism.  We refuse to withhold God's gifts from anyone that God has called.


WE RELEASE

We release you from all false beliefs that tell you that you are not enough, and invite you into an actual relationship with God, who loves you unconditionally and exactly the way you are.  God is infinitely more forgiving than humans - a blessed truth onto which we hold firmly.  We will encourage and guide you to seek personal growth, reform and healing.
