We are a Diverse People United in our Faith, Liberated by the Gospel!! The Corpus Christi Communion endeavors to provide a welcoming place where all people can come to worship God, pray, receive the Sacraments, and better understand the Word.
Of particular concern to us is the offering of valid sacraments to those who have been disenfranchised by the exclusionary practices of other churches and other Christians seeking forms of worship and beliefs of the early church.
We are a community created to shepherd and become a home for all those without a spiritual home. We retain basic beliefs of love, faith, spirituality, prayer, and sacramentality. . .
• We are Christians striving according to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
• We are God’s Children living in God who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
The Corpus Christi Communion Church’s purpose is to provide a safe, non-judgmental and welcoming place to all people who have suffered rejection from those organized religions that hold rules above compassion and judgment before love.
The Sacraments are: Baptism, Holy Eucharist, Confirmation, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Marriage/Holy Union, Holy Orders.
• Holy Eucharist We offer Holy Eucharist, to all people who have been sent away hungry from the Lords Table because of rules. The only criteria for receiving is that one be a Baptized Christian and believe that Christ is present on our Altar. It is our policy to WELCOME ALL people without regard to race, color, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, contraception beliefs, or other issues that are between the Creator and the created. We neither condone, nor do we practice discrimination implicitly or tacitly on the basis of any human authority.
• Marriage/Holy Union We acknowledges same-sex marriage and second marriages for the divorced, “Our official statement on that is basically that a marriage is limited to a union of two people, regardless of gender.”
This Communion Family is…
The communities of the Corpus Christi Communion seek to reach out to those who feel alienated. We believe that who a person is, and how a person lives, does not separate him or her from the love and compassion of God.
Believing that the Holy Spirit continues to guide the Church through the ‘Sense of the Faithful’, our Community sees itself as a process as well as an institution which hopes to listen to, rather than speak for, the people of God as they seek ways, prompted by the Spirit, to remake the Church into a credible community of faith for the world.
The difficult decisions in our lives are always harder to make alone. At such times, the compassionate support of a community of faith can be crucial. Morality ought to be the response to the life of the Holy Spirit within each human person, and a loving way of life for the whole community.
We believe wholeheartedly that an informed conscience, molded on Gospel values of truth, justice, compassion and love, should be the ultimate motivating force in a person’s life.
We teach these values with the individual person in mind and with respect for individual human freedom and dignity. We trust that we, if we are people fully living in the spirit of truth, will be able to decide what is just and right conduct, both in our own lives and within society.
We believe that no person should be denied the ability to worship Jesus Christ in an open and affirming worship community. These beliefs hold forth for both members and clergy. Our family is open to every race, gender, and sexual orientation. Our communities celebrate a weekly open communion for all baptized Christians regardless of denomination.
