Who We Are . . .
St. Alban’s is a Christian community which strives to be the hands of Christ to a broken world, welcoming all – whether we meet you on the street or in the pew after you have walked through our open Red Doors.
We are a caring, inclusive Community…
We acknowledge that God created humankind in God’s own image, and that all are beloved children of God. Because we are all beloved by God, we at St. Alban’s welcome and value all people without regard to race, ethnic background, family configuration, gender or gender identity, nationality, or sexual orientation.
Centered in the Eucharist…
We hold the Holy Eucharist to be the very core of our community. Our participation in the Divine Mystery informs who we are and how we view the world about us. Holy Eucharist reveals the truth that we are all one Body in Christ, and our participation in the Holy Eucharist strengthens and renews us for our service to others.
Grounded in the Gospel…
Jesus preached a message of compassion, inclusion and love. So. Do. We. A community of compassion, our bonds are based on God’s overwhelming love, rather than narrow definitions of doctrine and behavior. We accept people at all points in their spiritual journeys, and support each other as we all question and grow in faith as well as to proclaim God’s Word in the greater community to proclaim God’s word.
So that we can reach out as Christ’s hands to the world.
We care about and for others — both within and beyond our community of faith — and always consider everyone’s personal and spiritual needs. We believe that there are unique needs of God’s people at every stage of their journeys, and we seek to provide programs and support to serve spiritual needs throughout life. We reach out to address the world’s physical and spiritual needs, rather than waiting for the world to come to us. We promise to strive for justice and peace among all people, respecting the dignity of every human being regardless of physical, economic or social condition.
