We believe that the divine Word of God comes anew within a community that struggles with the issues of our day in light of the Gospel. We build our structures for worship, mission and cormnunity life on this belief, to help us attach our individual lives, missions, families and vocations onto the sturdy framework of God's Word.
The Seekers are called to be church in a way that includes everyone, regardless of age, race or sexual orientation. We emphasize the Christian spiritual growth of children and adults, and seek to equip and support one another through special structures for service and witness in the areas of family and primary relationships, work and citizenship. We are committed to working openly with the issues raised by feminist theology, the relationships between men and women, and our commitment to justice and peace.
