PROGRESSIVE CHRISTIANS @USC WELCOMES YOU
A Bit of Background
Welcome! In loving fellowship and spiritual practice, we follow the historic traditions of the Christian faith, interpreting them in light of social and scientific progress. We find grace in intellectual and contemplative engagement with our faith. We believe there is more value in questioning than in absolute answers: we take the Bible seriously because we don’t have to take it literally. We affirm that other religions can be as good for others as ours is good for us. We strive to make our earth a heavenly place of peace, justice, kindness, and beauty: we don’t believe anybody is going to hell. We affirm LGBT sexuality and we celebrate same-sex marriages.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.
