All are welcome here.
We are a community of believers seeking reconciliation for a broken-hearted world, working to bring health and wholeness to all God’s creation, and actively sharing the good news that God is with us.
Open Minds: We believe an open mind is an active mind. We believe that we are each called to think, discuss, contemplate, and reflect on the meaning of Christ. We practice this in our weekly church service and Sunday school, in addition to book groups, discussion groups and community interfaith events.
Faithful Hearts: Jesus reached out and befriended the sick and the poor, as well as women, tax collectors, and Samaritans – the people in his society considered unimportant. We strive to be faithful to Christ’s radical inclusive example and consider all people to be children of God.
Working Hands: We believe in putting our words into action. We serve at the local soup kitchen, developed a backpack food program for local school kids, and give boxes of needed clothes for local foster families. We also build houses with Habitat for Humanity, and we helped build a microhome in Austin’s Community First Village. We participate in the Pride Parade, Crop Walk and various community events throughout the year. We are a busy group, helping our members, our community and our world.
We, the family of believers called Church of the Savior, led by God’s spirit and trusting in God’s power, most solemnly and joyfully make this covenant:
- To be a community shaped by the spirit of Jesus Christ – open, accessible and inclusive of all people
- To foster a community of care in the church family by making ourselves available to each other in times of joy, sorrow or stress, in order that we might truly be priests to one another
- To seek personal growth as believers for ourselves and our families through study of the Bible and Christian literature
- To discover in ourselves and each other the unique gifts given us by God and to develop them to be used for God’s glory
- To pray for ourselves, our family, congregation, nation and world
- To gather regularly for times of worship, personal renewal and celebration of God
- To live with integrity, being constantly mindful of the example of our Lord
- To cheerfully offer the gifts of our lives and possessions to God through giving regular offerings to support the ministry and work of the congregation
- To seek opportunities to communicate our personal experiences with the God of Jesus Christ to those whose lives we touch
