Haven Fellowship Church
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” –John 13:34-35
Who We Are
Haven Fellowship Church values diversity, believing that diversity reflects the true Kingdom of God. With historic Baptist principles included in our affirmation of faith, but without a Baptist label, Haven is an ecumenical, or interdenominational, family of faith with church members from a number of backgrounds including Baptist, Catholic, Christian Church, Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, and many other denominations.
Along with our varying Christian heritages, we are also a people who do not interpret the same way, spend money the same way, or dress the same way! But, we choose to sit as one body around Christ’s table with both open hearts and open minds. We believe that our diversity does not limit our faith experiences, but rather enriches our understanding of unity and grace. As we have recognized our need for one another, our ability to minister to our community-at-large is extended; Christ’s table is open to all!
Our purpose is to experience the love of Jesus Christ and to be Christ-like in sharing unconditional love, so others may experience the redemptive love of Christ through a personal relationship with him.
To be a Christ-led church of grace and acceptance with an effective passion for identifying and meeting the needs of all people touched by the church.
We humble ourselves before Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and we humble ourselves before one another as we confess our sinfulness and constant shortness from Christ’s character. We trust in Jesus’ forgiving, cleansing, accepting, and empowering love, and we purpose in faith to love others as Christ loves us – loving others by our actions, speech, thoughts, vision, and prayer.
