- As as reflection of God’s love and grace, we of Pilgrim Church nurture each other and welcome and affirm all people.
- As an expression of our awareness of the Spirit acting within and among us, we of Pilgrim Church seek justice for the larger community.
- As a means of personal and social transformation, we of Pilgrim Church seek an ongoing encounter with Jesus as we engage our children and ourselves in lifelong learning about the life and teachings of Jesus and the history of the Church.
Pilgrim Church joyfully welcomes and equally affirms persons of every race, ethnic origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental ability, economic or educational status, and family configuration, into the full life and ministry of Pilgrim Church.
Pilgrim works and worships with two neighbor churches, Westminster Presbyterian and Union Ave Christian (Disciples of Christ). Our work on behalf of the community we do through the auspices of Union Communion Ministries. We share together in fellowship, study, and worship through plans made by the Union Council.
