What We Believe
As an inclusive, progressive faith community we believe:
Everyone is loved by God.
Being a church is more than just worship on Sunday.
We are called to work for justice and inclusion in our communities.
We are to stand with the most vulnerable among us.
The earth is a gift from God and we are called to be good stewards of creation, protecting all life and the environment.
If you are straight, bi, trans, or queer you are welcome. If you are a person of faith or no faith you are welcome. Every person is loved by God and is welcome at Mountain View United Church.
Mountain View Church Nurtures Beloved Community by honoring all people as being created in the image of God, inherently dignified and beloved. We joyfully host LGBTQ rites and ceremonies such as name-change blessings and weddings. As part of this vision, we also Nurture Communities of Belonging, Communities of Justice and Communities of Inclusion. To find out more about each of these ministries please go to their pages.
