Additional Info About Our Church

At Courtyard we want to be a church where, recognizing our context, all members of the congregation can use their gifts and ministries for God's glory. Courtyard seeks to use the gifts God has given us without regard to gender because we have found two distinct imperatives that compel us to do so. The first imperative is clear in the doctrine of creation. God created humankind as equals - "male and female he created them." Sin shattered Eden and the Christian faith holds that the course of holy history since has been the recreation of the connections between God and human beings. At the same time there has been the concern that God's creation recognize its oneness, a oneness that encompasses all creation, animate and inanimate, and a creation ultimately to be taken up again by God. Over the course of history barriers have slowly fallen in accord with Paul's summary in Galatians 3:28: "There is no such thing as Jew and Greek, slave and free, male and female; for you are all one person in Christ Jesus." The issue is not the "rights" of anyone, but recognizing the unfolding will of God. Secondly, Courtyard believes that what we have done is in accord with the biblical word. The two passages of Scripture most often referred to on this topic are found in 1 Corinthians 14 and 1 Timothy 2. We have concluded that these passages, and those of a similar nature elsewhere, are to be understood in the context of their communities. The writers of the New Testament had specific concerns when they wrote the epistles to those building the church and where the circumstances are not replicated the admonitions do not hold. Paul's word to the Galatians, we are all one in Christ, remains as the final word. It is with this spirit in mind that we have sought to use the gifts of all in our community in our worship to God. We are all products of our history, shaped by the hand of God and our unique experiences. We value the tradition we are a part of - the Churches of Christ - and we believe that what we are doing here is in accord with the best of the tradition. It is more important, however, that we act in accord with the will of God for us here and now so that we may be faithful witnesses to God's power in our lives. This we believe we have done and we pray that God will be glorified in the effort.

Mission:

Where all people are welcome to come into the presence of God to be formed into the image of Christ and grown into ministers of reconciliation to transform the world.
