Almost given up on Christianity? We understand.

If you understand that faith is a matter of mind as well as heart,
and that taking the Bible seriously means
it cannot always be taken literally...

If you know that God's love embraces all persons equally,
no matter their gender, race, or sexual identity...

If, for you, diversity, tolerance, and inclusivity
are strengths to be taught…

If you believe that the Christ calls us to be nothing less
than global citizens,
that the social expression of love is justice,
and that spiritual concerns are
inseparable from commitment to the natural world...

If you've wished for a more open and
embracing community of faith to nurture
your spirit and raise your children,
and haven't yet found a place of belonging...

then we warmly invite you to any
of the congregations listed on this page.


If you would like to join this list of progressive congregations,
we welcome you enthusiastically. Contact Doug Long at
