What We Believe
St. James is a community of authentic disciples who celebrate that Jesus saves us as imperfect people, compelling us to respond with wholehearted joyful devotion as Christ-followers. We care about each other and our community, and put great value in the relationships that we build all around us. We believe God changes lives and, empowered by the Holy Spirit, we can make an honest, real difference in the lives of others and our community by following Jesus’ example of unconditional love.
Our Mission & Vision
The mission of St. James is to ignite a contagious passion for Jesus Christ, becoming God’s instruments of transformation here and in the world.
To fulfill this mission, we are striving to be a church that is Christ-centered, inwardly strong and outwardly focused. We are a congregation that joyfully chooses to see ourselves and one another through the lens of God’s grace.
As we worship God, and connect with each other, we have the amazing privilege of growing as disciples of Jesus Christ, while also serving and loving our community for the purpose of inspiring people to find and follow Jesus.
St. James is an active member of the Fellowship of Presbyterians, partnering with Christians around the world in God’s mission rooted in Biblical Reformed theology, which is a theology of God’s grace in Jesus Christ. He is a gracious God, a God who is love before he is anything else.
