Believe Out Loud Congregation
St. Peter’s Church is proud to be a Believe Out Loud congregation, which is rooted in love, grows in God’s grace, and reaches out and welcomes all into our community, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, or gender expression.
Believe Out Loud is an online network that empowers Christians to work for LGBT equality. It elevates the places where Christianity and LGBT justice intersect.
As a church we believe that each and every one of us is made in God’s image – beautiful and beloved, unique and whole. We work for the day when all are treated as equals in our families, churches, and communities.
Believe Out Loud believes that:
- Faith is a journey that reveals the new and the unexpected every day. Just as Abraham set forth on a journey in response to God’s call, we are travelers on an unknown, wondrous and sometimes frightening path.
- Each of us is made in God’s image – beautiful and beloved, unique and whole.
- The greatest commandment is love. We strive to love God with all our hearts, all our minds, and all our souls and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Jesus teaches us to welcome all. We believe our churches and society should do the same.
We work for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality because God calls us to do justice and love kindness.
One day, all of us – regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity – will be treated as equals in our families, our churches, and our communities.
Until that day, we will raise our Christian voices for love, equality and justice!
