Our Mission:

Centered in the inclusive love of Jesus Christ, we seek to be a welcoming, affirming, and healing congregation. Led by the Holy Spirit, we are inspired to grow and be renewed through our worship, fellowship, scripture study, and the sharing of our gifts. Strengthened by God's love and guidance, we strive to serve with compassion those in need, both near and far. We are an Open and Affirming Church.

Our mission statement is our "ideal" ministry. In actuality, we are an eclectic group of seekers and servants who have learned to be compassionate and encouraging of one another over time. Our ministries are growing and varied; we are open to continual transformation and new creation, as led by the Holy Spirit. Please join us. We think that you will find the Belleville Church community to be a place where you can receive supportive love and share your gifts and talents.
