Welcome to Kimball Avenue Church
Bruce Ray, Pastor
We are a Christ-centered community who lives God's alternative vision for the world by living in reconciliation to God and one another, seeking justice for all creation, and welcoming all people on the journey.
We believe that God has revealed God’s self fully to the world through the person and work of Jesus Christ. By God’s Spirit, we become members of the body of Christ to enable us to grow fully into the likeness of Christ.
LIVING GOD’S ALTERNATIVE VISION
We believe that God’s Word reveals an alternative vision for the world--a world of “shalom” where everyone shares in the fullness of God’s blessing economically and socially. We believe that God has begun to “make all things new” through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As followers of Jesus, we live out the new creation.
LIVING IN RECONCILIATION
We believe that the world is broken because of personal and corporate sin (our self-centered acts driven by fear and anxiety). God invites us to be reconciled to God through the cross of Christ and to be reconciled to one another. This demands ongoing honest reflection, personal and corporate confession, repentance and restoration.
SEEKING JUSTICE FOR ALL CREATION
We believe that a right relationship with God demands that we live out right relationships with the rest of God’s good creation. As a result, we are committed to social justice, peace and environmental stewardship.
WELCOMING ALL PEOPLE
We believe that God wants all people to participate in the new creation. Though we are all coming from different places in life, we are united in living toward the new creation in Christ. Everyone (no matter how you self-identify) is welcome on the journey to discover our full identity as the people of God.
