Statement on Interdenominational and Interreligious Relations
Humans have always had different understandings of the Christian Gospel. Yet, the vast number of denominational divisions over the centuries has been a great tragedy because it has made Christians enemies of one another rather than friends through Christ. Here at Church on Main we welcome into our fellowship those who are or have been members of any church and wish to worship with us. We also welcome those who have had no affiliation with any church. Further, we welcome dialogue and cooperative social action with Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Buddhists and others. In short, we at Church on Main celebrate all human strivings for the ultimate meaningfulness of our lives.
