What We Believe

The Mission of the Cathedral of Hope is to reclaim Christianity as a faith of extravagant grace, radical inclusion and relentless compassion.
Our beliefs are based upon our Core Values. The Core Values of Cathedral of Hope are Compassion, Inclusion, Liberation, Hope and Faith in Jesus.

Compassion

We are a people of Compassion. We live out the tangible love of a savior who fed the hungry, healed the hurting, and told us bluntly that what we did to the least we did to him.

Inclusion

We are a people of Inclusion. We believe Jesus came to include, not to exclude. Jesus made it clear that all are welcome around God’s table.

Liberation

We are a people of Liberation. We challenge all oppression, especially the oppression of queer people. By embodying grace, we live out our liberation until all are set free.

Hope

We are a people of Hope. We are people filled with joy and unrelenting optimism because we believe God is good. With God, all things are possible. God can use us to transform the world.

Jesus

We are a people of Jesus. We believe Jesus was the incarnation of God’s grace. Jesus was the ultimate liberal, who resisted the status quo of oppression and showed us the way to the abundant life God intends for all people.
