Love First-Our Credo

Welcome to Old First. We gather together here, because our church draws people who love god’s openness and acceptance and faith. God’s love is shown through the congregation’s warmth, kindness, benefit of the doubt, support, loyalty, and grace. We are happy for everyone who walks through our door because god’s is a part of you. So come as you are because every quirk and wrinkle is in that perfect image.

We are a non-creedal church which means you do not have to believe or affirm a particular set of stated beliefs to belong or to feel comfortable. We encourage doubts and questions, and we value rethinking our theology together.

All you need is Love
