OPEN AND AFFIRMING COVENANT
We covenant with God and with one another as members of First Parish Church to be an Open and Affirming Church.
We affirm the dignity and worth of every person created in the image of God. We are one body with many members: people of every age, marital status, family structure, faith background, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, racial and cultural identity, and socio-economic status.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, we invite all into the full life, ministry, and sacraments of the church.
We honor the guiding principle that discrimination is incompatible with Christ's message of unconditional love.
Together, we can bring Christ's word and work to the world.
