MISSION STATEMENT

To make known to all people the good news of Jesus Christ, following the inspiration of Saint Stephen in faith and works.

 

VISION STATEMENT

 

To make known…

by providing a variety of settings for people to experience the saving grace of Jesus Christ; by offering many opportunities for faith development through lifelong learning; by witnessing to the redeeming love of God as we strive for justice and peace

To all people…

wherever they may be:  within our congregation, in the surrounding communities, throughout the world; whatever their background, geographic origin, ethnicity, cultural background, sexual orientation, religious experience; whatever their status or condition: mental physical social marital, economic; whatever their stage in life, from birth to death

 

The good news of Jesus Christ…

that our gracious and merciful God shows love for all people through Jesus Christ; that God saves people from sin and gives them new life through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; that God calls all people into the community to grow in faith and spread this Good News to all who have not heard

 

In faith and works…

by demonstrating our Christian faith through what we say and what we do; by showing through our love and sharing that we are disciples of Jesus Christ; by welcoming all people in our diverse community that they may be empowered to serve God in the world
