Mar Mac Friends Meeting
Catch the Spirit, Cling to Love, Change the World
What We Believe
We believe that true religion involves an immediate, inward, personal encounter with God—that this, rather than ritual and ceremony, is what we must experience to obtain salvation.
We believe that each individual has worth, dignity, freedom, and responsibility before God. (John 1:9)
We believe that worship is a personal, positive act of seeking, rather than a performance—that communion is an inner spiritual experience rather than an outward observance.
We believe that moral purity, integrity, honesty, simplicity, and humility are essential to the Christian life.
We believe in Christian love and good will as a way of life which makes hatred and violence impossible.
We believe that Christ—like love and concern for suffering and unfortunate people must find expression in humanitarian service and social justice.
We believe in the continuing revelations of the Holy Spirit of God, who grants us new openings, insights, and revelations of spiritual truth, according to the scriptures.
We desire to be immersed in the spirit of the Living Christ who teaches us truth and love, allowing Him to develop within us a desire to reach out to others with a message of salvation and a mission to serve.
