Hello and greetings from the Tavares Community of Christ Church, we welcome you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
God’s revelation in Jesus Christ and continuing presence through the Holy Spirit, as proclaimed by scripture, is the foundation of our faith, identity, mission, message, and beliefs.
In faithful response to our heritage and continuing experience with God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit, we endeavor to uphold several enduring principles (values, concepts, themes) as essential components of church identity and mission:
• God views all people as having inestimable and equal worth.
• God wants all people to experience wholeness of body, mind, spirit, and relationships.
• That we seek to uphold and restore the worth of all people individually and in community, challenging all unjust systems that diminish human worth.
• And we join with Jesus Christ in bringing good news to the poor, sick, captive, and oppressed.
Please come and enjoy the Spirit of Christ with us this Sunday or any day. As an offering we extend to you this web site as a guide to how we live out our Mission.
