Churches...different streams

There is much diversity within the Body of Christ, and rather than categorize according to denominations, there are other ways to describe our pluralistic fellowship of believers…

Contemplative~ Quiet listening and intimacy with God through silence, spirituality, and solitude to illuminate the dark.

Holiness~ Striving against sin and seeking after virtue and righteousness

Charismatic~ Yielding to the power of the Spirit to transform us into Christ’s image.

Evangelical~ Proclaiming the Good News of God’s Kingdom.

Incarnational~ Focusing on Christ within us, through symbolism and liturgy.

There is a place for everyone in the Church...we simply find where we best fit.
