-"Agape” is a Greek word that points to the unconditional love the Divine has for us. It is the love that we are called to have for each other- a love that welcomes and embraces all, and that reaches out in compassionate service.
At Agape, we:
Love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength through music, worship, and contemplative, spiritual practices;
Love our neighbor as we fully love ourselves;
Love and care for the earth and all of creation;
Love our youth and children, who are not only our future, but our present;
Live in service, and work to make God’s agape love and justice real;
Live, practice, and embody our faith;
Follow the way of Jesus, while drawing wisdom from all spiritual traditions rooted in love;
Welcome all people as they are, no matter their race, color, culture, creed, finances, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression;
Affirm that God loves you just as you are!
