About Saint James

About

-what we're all about

Saint James is a community of folks figuring out what it means to be Jesus-followers in this world. We are open to all people joining us in the discovery of our place in God’s world. We live our faith in everyday life and hope that we will continue to find ways to share the good news of God’s love through Jesus in our actions and words.

Authenticity. Being real. We believe in being who we are, not who we think we’re supposed to be. We have real struggles to be followers of Jesus. We do not pretend to live perfect lives or to have arrived in some perfect faith world. We are not afraid to share our struggles with each other.

 

Integrity. Wholeness. We believe each person is called to bring their whole selves into relationship with Jesus. All parts of our lives are part of us; hence they are also part of our relationships, including and especially with God. We believe all the parts of us make up who we are as individuals. We are not one person at work, another at home, another in worship. We believe in bringing together all these pieces of our lives into one whole.

 

Transparency. We believe that one of our goals in following Jesus is to become so “clear” that others see Jesus through us.

 

…Forgiveness. We are coming to believe that we are people not only in need of personal forgiveness but also in need of learning to forgive. We are striving to become a community of forgiving people in our everyday lives. (This is a new value under development at Saint James)

To become bridge-builders at the intersections of daily life, sharing our love for Jesus through our actions and our words.

To build relationships centered on Jesus among and beyond the people of Saint James.

Sarah:

“Our daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters are blessed to be part of the community of Saint James and we are blessed to be part of it when we visit. We have witnessed first hand the genuine love, care, concern, and support for them when life throws curve balls. They have shared in their joys, lifted and walked alongside them when they learned of their first daughter’s heart defects and subsequent surgeries. As parents who live 13 hours away, it gives us great joy and comfort to know our family is in such a loving Christ-centered community. The area is blessed to have this loving group of people in it.”

April:

“I have been part of the St. James community since 2001. My best friend and I started attending when we were young adults, and have grown up there, in a lot of ways. Pastor James, Linda, and their children were in my wedding. My family has participated in various activities there, and St. James is an important part of our lives. I love this community. I am so happy that we gave St. James a try, all those years ago!”
