We Believe...


there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Debatable Matters & the Middle Ground


Stone Ridge has long been a place where people come from a variety of spiritual backgrounds. We have people with no previous spiritual history, as well as Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans, Catholics, Pentecostals, and a host of other traditions. 


Embracing the diversity of our body means being comfortable with the fact that we don’t all see things the same way. While there is a diversity of perspectives at Stone Ridge, we do think it is important to agree on some fundamental truths (these are articulated in our statement of faith). We also believe that it's important to articulate what perspectives have room for debate and what perspectives we cannot embrace.


The link below will lead you to our Debatable Matters document. This is an ongoing project of our Elders that expresses where we stand on a variety of topics.
