Who We Are

Gloria Dei was founded in 1956 and since that time we have strived to be a congregation that loves our neighbor both at Gloria Dei and beyond our walls.

Who we are can be best summed up by our Statement of Faith…

We believe that the way we treat one another is the fullest expression of how we live out our faith. We find our approach to God through the life and teachings of Jesus Christ who is our model for living. We recognize the faithfulness of other paths which may also lead people to an experience of God. We stand in God’s grace and we live that grace in our attitudes and actions toward one another. We understand the church as a community of people who together make up the body of Christ. We strive to serve the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of others. We are inclusive, as Christ was, and welcome all people seeking a closer relationship with God. We believe that the questions are as important as the answers, that living the mystery is a more sacred position than church tradition and doctrine. We strive to “love all, serve all, in Jesus’ name” as we proclaim our mystery of faith that:

Christ died…Christ has risen…Christ will come again.
