Our purpose - To increase the love of God and neighbor - comes from the Great Commandment of Jesus: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind and love your neighbors as you love yourself.
Members of our congregation hold to God and to each other through a covenant, or sacred promise, and not through creeds, doctrine or dogma. With the decision to become a member of Plymouth Church, each person makes this covenant:
In the presence of God and these witnesses, I give myself unreservedly to God's service, and take this to be my church. Ever mindful of the welfare of my brother and sister members, I promise to walk with them in faithfulness and Christian love. And I promise that, so far as able, I will attend the services of this church, observe its sacraments, share in its work, support its benevolence and endeavor to make it a fruitful body of Christians.
We agree to differ. We resolve to love. We unite to serve.
We are people on a journey, witnesses for God and disciples of Jesus Christ. As pilgrims, we are energized and led by the Holy Spirit toward unity with God and each other. Living our faith in relationship to our Creator and each other, we seek to make a difference in the quality of all life. We are called to be authentic in our worship, fellowship, teaching and service. Individually we may differ in our calling, but we regard diversity as creative and productive. We desire to enable each other to work toward wholeness and peace in the world. We honor, celebrate and practice inclusiveness. Plymouth Church has been an Open and Affirming congregation since 1993.
