We long to inspire the world with the inclusive love of Jesus.
- In God’s unconditional love and grace, which extends to all people
- In Jesus Christ whose life reveals God’s redeeming work in the human family
- In the Holy Spirit which brings us into closer harmony with God, creation, one another, and ourselves
What We Believe
We are a United Church of Christ Congregation
As Disciples We:
Follow the path of Jesus Christ, while respecting other pathways to God
Encourage each person’s individual spiritual journey, embracing a variety of sacred practices
Reach out in love to those in need locally, nationally, and internationally
Find more grace in the search for meaning than in absolute certainty
Are united by faith, called to serve, inspired to think
We are committed to diversity, knowing that to truly follow Jesus; we must honor the guiding principle that discrimination is incompatible with Jesus Christ’s message of unconditional love.
We welcome into full membership and participation in all aspects of our church life, persons of every race, language, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, physical or mental ability, economic or marital status and faith background, and we officiate and celebrate all loving and committed relationships.
We believe difference is an asset, rather than a threat. That’s an odd statement in a society that draws lines of division between rich and poor, white and brown, gay and straight. It’s peculiar in a nation where 43% of Democrats and Republicans are deeply concerned that their child might marry someone from the opposite party. But at Wayzata Community Church we truly believe that we grow stronger by keeping difference together in conversation and fellowship.
