APCC's open and affirming commitment

All Pilgrims Christian Church is a faith-community
which truly values and celebrates diversity.
Through God’s love and with Christ’s example
we set aside all human barriers and divisions
and invest ourselves in the healing of prejudice, exclusion and hatred.

We are open to, and affirming of, the full participation of all
as equal members in this one body: people of all colors, ages,
economic circumstances, sexual orientations, gender or transgender identities, physical and mental abilities, education levels and conditions of health.

We consider no commandment to be greater than this:
“We shall love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength
and love our neighbors as we love ourselves.”
