We believe that somehow, God breathed life into the world and declared that it is all good– from the egrets winging their way over Eagan’s creek, and the creek itself – to the manatees meandering through the marina, and the inter-coastal itself**. We believe that God expects us to both enjoy and oversee this creation – to use it wisely, for our benefit and for that of our neighbor and to ensure that it will continue to reflect God’s creativity for generations to come. We believe that through Christ, all things are redeemed and will be made new – our own sinful selves as well as the world around us. We believe that every blade of grass and every drop of rain are miracles that testify to the work of the Holy Spirit. By living responsibly, we express our gratitude for the blessings of nature, in which we live, work, play and worship. Thanks be to God, our Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.
