Welcome to our web page

Our congregation is a deliberate effort to do liberation theology, although not in the way we generally understand that term. The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines liberation theology as: "a school of theology...that finds in the Gospel a call to free people from political, social, and material oppression."

Generally we think of liberation theology as coming from a Third World context. We are attempting to do liberation theology for a different context. We are seeking to delineate the Gospel as it would appear in a 21st century, western, urban and suburban context, including among the oppressions it addresses the psychological and emotional oppressions that are real for people who live in that environment.

We believe social and political change is the byproduct of changes that occur in the internal and personal world of individuals and groups. We seek to describe what God does to initiate change internally and personally and thereby also socially. The descriptions of what God does are taken from the Bible. Concepts that are alive and vital in the urban and suburban culture in which we live are used to illuminate and amplify Biblical ideas. At the same time Biblical ideas are used to expand the meaning of and application of contemporary concepts.

We follow the structure of the Christian Liturgical Calendar in our worship, and strive to adhere to the Reformed Tradition in what we teach.

We are a radically traditional congregation in The Presbytery of the Redwoods in the Presbyterian Church (USA).
