OPEN HANDS

St. Thomas United Church is committed to learning and living the faith taught by Jesus. At St. Thomas we take the Bible seriously but not literally. We use its teachings to take us deeper into faith and action. We are a celebratory community. We believe life is a sacrament. We believe faith is a journey.

OPEN HEARTS

Our fundamental value is love. Jesus taught us that we are to love the Lord, our God, with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind, and with all our strength. And to love our neighbour as we love ourselves. We strive to accept each other as we are and welcome the ministry and participation of all persons regardless of age, gender identity, health, race, sexual orientation, differing abilities, religious or ethnic background or economic circumstance.

OPEN MINDS

Flowing out from our fundamental value of love are our core values of respect, cooperation, participation, hospitality, reaching out, sharing, caring, good humour, honesty, forgiveness, and openness – to people, in all aspects of life, to questions and new learning, to new ideas, to the world around us, to differing expressions of faith.
