Interfaith Partnerships

We live in a pluralistic age our forebears could not foresee. We recognize and celebrate, as Gandhi did, “that all religions are true,” and that there are many paths to God, to salvation, to freedom and transformation. First Church is constantly learning from and working with people of others faiths and people of no faith to make the world a more caring, more understanding, more just place!
