Why Choose No Reservations?
In a world teeming with ways to spend your time beyond work and obligations, picking a faith community might seem overwhelming. You might wonder, what sets No Reservations apart from the church or faith community down the street?
Churches in the Miami-Dade area present a broad spectrum of beliefs and practices. Some, unfortunately, may prove unwelcoming despite professing Christian values. A quick glimpse at their “What We Believe” section often provides an insight into their actual community ethos.
However, numerous churches and faith communities genuinely embody love and acceptance, seeking to emulate Christ’s teachings. You will find such communities among our partners, dedicated to the call of Christ to love thy neighbor and embody the essence of love (1 John 4:8).
So, why No Reservations? We are not a traditional church and have no aspirations to be confined to a single denomination or faith expression. Our goal is to mirror the best of our partner communities, enriching them while also providing a haven for those who don’t fit the available options. We present an alternative faith option where exploration and questioning are welcomed without any membership pressures or adherence to a single Christian way.
Our community is a blend of seekers and misfits, rebels, social justice warriors, and those needing healing or a pause to reconnect with the universe. We don’t claim monopoly over any theological perspective or absolute truth. We open our doors to all who recognize our world’s disparities, feel the chasm in our human connection, and yearn to envision a more harmonious world and spiritually evolved human potential.
We are reformers, drawing on 3,000 years of prophetic wisdom, committed to collaborating with our community and faith partners in promoting faith exploration, social justice, and fostering intersectional relationships across diverse backgrounds and faith stances.
So, we invite you to give us a chance, bring your questions, frustrations, hurts, joys, and talents. Together, we can embody the essence of Christ and uncover our authentic selves.
