“Progressive Christianity is an open, intelligent, and collaborative approach to the Christian tradition and the life and teachings of Jesus that creates a pathway into an authentic and relevant religious experience.” (progressivechristianity.org)

At Grace, being “progressive” implies:

·         An expansive understanding of God and scripture

·         A celebration of human diversity

·         A strong emphasis on social justice and care for the poor and oppressed

·         An emphasis on the values of compassion, justice, mercy and tolerance, often through political activism
