Who We Are

The Body of Christ

Our purpose at the Federated Church is to reach people with the extravagant welcoming  message of Jesus that we might become fully devoted followers of Christ. 

A Church Without Walls

We strive to be just that, a church without walls. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach those of our neighbors in need.  We seek to find ways to serve the world around us and are always seeking where that call may lead us.

A Community of Seekers

Together we are a community of seekers. What does that mean, the word community? We believe that together in fellowship we grow closer to God and one another. The bible speaks about iron sharpening iron. We believe that together we grow stronger. We are always looking for deeper, richer understanding and ways to share the Messsae of the all inclusive love that is Christ..

What We Believe

We believe that the goal of church is not to make people more religious but to help people fall more in love with God and therefore become more fully human. We believe that we are called to reach out to our neighbors both locally and globally and serve them in ways that make a difference. We believe that spiritual practices like prayer, reading the Bible,  and participating in small groups, are vital to our faith. We are called to be the extravagant welcome that Christ modeled in the world.

No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.


Our Mission and Vision

We have a very particular mission and vision for this church. We believe that if we stick to a plan and focus on that plan that we will succeed in it. God has blessed us with a great work, and we are excited to fulfill his plans for us.

God has put in place a vision for our church. We are simply doing our very best to fulfill the prayer...to bring God's kindom here on earth as it is in Heaven!.

The mission of the Federated Church is to love and worship God and to be a nurturing and accepting community.  We strive to live and teach Christian values and to follow faithfully the example of Christ.  As vessels of God, we are called to help satisfy the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of people of all ages.  As a people of peace, 
we reach out to our community and the world.  As stewards of God, we accept responsibility for the growth and management of our church and for the stewardship 
of our earth's resources.

You are always welcome in our church community.
