Welcome Statement unanimously approved by the Vestry of St. Barnabas
Jesus spent his earthly ministry reaching out to the oppressed and marginalized. St. Barnabas strives to be like Jesus by explicitly welcoming everyone, including those who have been excluded elsewhere. We believe that the Body of Christ is more complete when we embrace the broad diversity of God’s creation.
No matter where you are in your faith journey and regardless of age, race, color, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, or socioeconomic status, you are welcome here and will be fully included in the life of the church.
God loves you. No exceptions.
