Our Church Culture
A Loving Community
St. Peter and St. Paul is a safe place for those outside of the church to consider the claims of Christ, and a loving community for the baptized to grow deeper in their Christian faith and commitment.
We seek to live as a trusting, hope-filled, authentic “household of faith”. However, our unity in the love of Jesus Christ is not accomplished through the will of man or the impressiveness of human creativity. It is accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit with our continuing desire and effort to “love the Lord our God” and to “love our neighbor as ourselves”.
" . . . the one really adequate instrument for learning about God is the whole Christian community, waiting for Him together . . . that is why all these people who turn up every few years with some patent simplified religion of their own as a substitute for the Christian tradition are really wasting their time . . . if Christianity was something we were making up, of course we could make it easier. But it is NOT . . . anyone can be simple if he has no facts to bother about."
