Since 1952, Beacon Heights Church of the Brethren has been an evolving community of believers on a journey together.
open and affirming
Beacon Heights Church believes everyone is a child of God. We welcome all people, of any age, gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, family status, socioeconomic status, physical ability, mental ability, or place along their faith journey.
Beacon Heights is a living peace church, following the New Testament calling to "Love your neighbor as yourself"(Matthew 19:19b).
We are a community called through the work of Christ Jesus to nurture the dignity and wholeness of all people. We believe it is necessary to practice and promote justice in human relationships. We strive to be a safe place for all who are seeking God's love.
Beacon Heights is committed to caring for God's Earth. We do so with solar power (panels installed in 2015), recycling programs, and education. We persistently work to make our place of worship more environmentally sound and hope to be a catalyst of environmental efforts in our community.
church of the brethren
The Church of the Brethren, begun in Germany almost 300 years ago, still draws those who want to continue Jesus' work of loving service. Brethren look to the New Testament for guidance rather than to doctrine or rules designed by humans. Our faith emphasizes compassionate service, justice-seeking, and moderation in living. Brethren work locally and worldwide to help victims of war, poverty, and natural disasters. We baptize those who seek to follow Jesus; we anoint for healing and wholeness; and in our Love Feast we reenact the Last Supper at which Jesus washed his disciples' feet and offered the bread and cup in Communion. We believe Jesus showed us another way of living... a way of peace and love. We strive to continue the work of Jesus ... peacefully, simply, and together.
