The best way to understand what Tree of Life  believes is to look through our theology and our collective conscience on social issues. 

There are 2 primary elements of our Congregation.

Our theology is captured in 16 Articles of Faith, which describe how we understand Scripture.

Our positions include favoring marriage over divorce while at the same time fully receiving those who have suffered divorce-

 

-opposing abortion, viewing homosexual behavior as one of many forms of sexual impurity that God offers to transform us from, and opposing alcohol use beyond a cultural context, tobacco use and gambling.

These positions are not enforced legalistically, but members agree to embrace them as our collective conscience and to ensure that at least inside the congregational assembly our teaching and practice be consistent with them.
