We are an LGBTQ friendly community, inclusive of all genders and identities. We young and mature, single and married, with kids and without, traditional and progressive, introverted and extraverted, catholic and protestant, intellectual and artistic, gay and straight, yet we choose to leave those human labels at the door for our common identity is Christ Jesus.
Some of us are Methodists, others of us are Catholics, still others are Baptists, Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Lutherans and several other traditions, yet we choose to abandon these religious and denominational labels for we are one in Christ Jesus. Diverse in race and ethnicity, some of us identify as Latino, Black, White, Asian, Multiracial and several other groups, yet we choose to celebrate our differences, including other languages in worship.
We are made up of different backgrounds, ages, colors, identities and faith traditions. Our desire is to become more aware of each other, which gives us a greater image of God for we are all marked with the image of God. The face of the God becomes fuller and clearer when we gather with different people. We do realize our current political leader fosters racial separation and uses divisiveness for political propaganda and gain, therefore, our response to that is more togetherness and our faith in Jesus Christ is what bind us together.
WHAT IS OUR MISSION?
Crave Life's mission is unity with Christ and all of God's people.
WHAT ARE OUR VALUES?
Unity - racial togetherness in worship Inclusivity - inclusion of all individuals Diversity - embracing our differences Community - a tribe that you can call your own
