Statement of Affirmation

We, the Ambler Church of the Brethren, welcome all people into full membership and participation in all aspects of our church life. All God's children are invited to share in this journey toward God's wholeness together; people of all races, ethnicities, ages, gender identities, family statuses, physical and mental abilities, sexual orientations, socio-economic classes ... EVERY person. YOU are welcome.

We celebrate the diversity of God's family and seek to lift up and affirm each person, supporting the dignity, wholeness, and intrinsic value of every woman, man, and child. We commit to intentionally live out in word and deed the love of Jesus for all people, extending God's peace to all who seek it.

We honor the guiding principle that our faith family must be a safe place for all who are seeking the unconditional love offered by Jesus. Through our studies, our fellowship, and our prayer and meditation, we will continue to learn and grow in our understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
