What We Believe

If you are a first-time guest at Bering or a long-time member,
You are not only welcome here, you are celebrated here!
If you are black, brown, white or anything in between,
You are not only welcome here, you are celebrated here!
If you are gay, straight, bisexual, lesbian, transgender, or non-gender binary,
You are not only welcome here, you are celebrated here!
If you are a Native American or an immigrant friend, whether or not you have documents,
You are not only welcome here, you are celebrated here!
If you are lay or clergy, male or female, young or old, abled or differently-abled, rich or poor, short or tall, wide or deep,
You are not only welcome here, you are celebrated here!
No matter what you believe or what you doubt . . .
No matter what you count on, or what you question . . .
You are not only welcome here, you are celebrated here!
At Bering, we celebrate you as a gift of the Creator,
and an individual wonder of God’s creation.

You are enough! You are a gift! God made us each unique and wants us to celebrate our identity and worth.

We need God and we need each other. With the help of Jesus and each other, we can become all that God created us to be. And that is a good thing!

We were made for community.  The church is a community that gathers to celebrate and help one another, and the world, obtain what we need to thrive and become all that God created us to be. We do this through worship, service, prayer, gathering, sharing our gifts and sharing a meal. We would love for you to bring your gifts and come celebrate and serve with us!

Everyone needs a safe place to be their authentic selves. Church was meant to be such a place. Whether you have a good, bad or no history with church, Bering is a safe place for you, just as you are.
