What We Believe

God loves us. This belief is at the center of all we do at Fairmount. The God we worship and serve is one who loves us as we are -- no questions asked. 

We are called to share that love with others. Sometimes this means giving our time and resources to those in need. Often it requires extending forgiveness to those who have wronged us, but our call to share God's love is always done in response to God's love for us. 

All are welcome to receive and respond to God's love. As beloved children of God, we welcome all persons to join our family of faith as full participants, regardless of age, race or ethnicity, national origin, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, mental or physical ability, economic status, differences of thought and expression, or any other human condition. We celebrate and find strength in our diversity.

Community matters. We believe that God's love is best experienced in the context of a community. When we commit to worshipping, serving, and learning with others, we learn more about God and ourselves; we also gain access to a deeper wisdom that helps us to navigate the wonderful and challenging complexities of life.
