Joining Hands.  Loving People. Changing Lives.

|TOGETHER|, formerly known as LoveRI, is a movement of churches in Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts that is devoted to actively loving our communities and the individuals in them and to sharing the message of Jesus Christ.

We commit to pray and work together so that southeastern New England churches, individually, congregationally, and cooperatively, practice a lifestyle of praying, caring, and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.

Oversight for |TOGETHER| is provided by a board of directors, who affirm their agreement with the following doctrinal statement of the National Association of Evangelicals:

· We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

· We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

· We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

· We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

· We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

· We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

· We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
