We, as members of the Christian community known as the Ballard Vale United Church, believe that all persons are recipients of God’s love and grace.
We try to follow Jesus’ example of seeking to bring all to accept this love, forgiveness, and grace, and so direct our lives.
We affirm the need to proceed compassionately and justly with each other.
Therefore, we welcome and affirm all persons who wish to participate in the fellowship and spiritual growth of this reconciling congregation and open and affirming church without regard to age, disability, economic status, gender, gender identity, race, sexual orientation or social standing.
By this statement we anticipate becoming an even stronger and more loving Christian community.
