Christians have been gathering together since the first century to break bread, share in fellowship with each other, be present with God, and celebrate the resurrection of Christ.
1.1 Observe the Golden Rule: Do Only That Which Is Right. Harm no one.
1.2 We are advocates of the absolute right to the freedom of religion. That all people have a right to worship and believe in the way that is right for them. This is a very open doctrine of acceptance and self-empowerment.

Appropriate frontal is approved and may be seasonally changed or remain static throughout the year. Appropriates pictures and/or Bankrolls may adorn the walls of the Holy Place.

CL020.31.0. Clergy Dress and Vestments.
CL020.31.1 Clergies are required to wear a clerical dress when administering the Spiritual Services and should dress appropriately when taking funerals, visiting the sick and appearing at any other function where they are to offer ministry. It is the free choice of the clergypersons concerned as to whether they wish to wear the clerical dress when not exercising such functions, but chaplaincy uniform is a must, in that case, except for weddings when requested a suit is required.
