Statement

Our

Mission

THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH IS TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE WORLD by proclaiming the good news of God's grace and by exemplifying Jesus' command to love God and neighbor, thus seeking the fulfillment of God's reign and realm in the world. God uses the church to save persons, heal relationships, transform social structures, and spread spiritual holiness, thereby changing the world.


We make disciples as we:

PROCLAIM the gospel, seek, welcome and gather persons into the body of Christ;

LEAD persons to commit their lives to God through baptism by water and the spirit and profession of faith in Jesus Christ;

NURTURE persons in Christian living through worship, and the sacraments, spiritual disciplines;

SEND persons into the world to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, free the oppressed being and becoming compassionate, caring presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel;

CONTINUE the mission of seeking, welcoming, and gathering persons into the community of the body of Christ.
