Vision, Mission, Imperative, and Covenant

"In our quest to embody Christian unity, led and
empowered by the Holy Spirit, we believe God calls us:


OUR VISION

To be a faithful, growing church, that demonstrates true community,
deep Christian spirituality and a passion for justice. (Micah 6:8)


OUR MISSION

To be and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, witnessing,
loving and serving from our doorsteps "to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8)


OUR IMPERATIVE

To strengthen congregational life for this mission.
(Ephesians 4:11-13, 15-16)


To accomplish this, we shall:

Become the Good News:

*Nurturing faith
*Practicing and teaching the spiritual disciplines
*Fostering Disciples identity
*Renewing congregational life
*Developing leaders


Share the Good News:

*Emphasizing ministry with children, youth, young adults and families
*Doing evangelism
*Establishing new congregations
*Creating ministries with older adults


Serve from "our doorsteps to the ends of the earth":

*Engaging in ministries of reconciliation, compassion, unity and justice.

OUR COVENANT

In accepting our Vision, Mission and Imperative, we affirm our need to:
be an anti-racist/pro-reconciliation church, strengthen relationships among all
manifestations of the church, share mutually and more fully
the stewardship of God's gifts of our life in Christ, encourage our growing
diversity within our church family and community, work with our many
ecumenical and global partners to heal the brokenness of the
body of Christ and the human community."
