Inspired by Christ, our mission is to love and serve with all people in restoring all of creation to God’s loving embrace.
- We are inspired by Christ, which means:
- that we believe that Christianity is about community and relationships.
- we see the Christian faith as a way of life more than a set of abstract doctrines or intellectual beliefs.
- together, we learn how to live, to pray, to think, to worship, to work, and to serve like Jesus – but in our place and time.
- When we say that we love and serve with all people, we:
- affirm our connectedness to people everywhere who are striving to be a blessing to their neighbors, the world and to those within our own community.
- are an open and affirming community, welcoming all people as part of God’s creation.
- We are engaged in restoring all of creation to God’s loving embrace, which means that we act to regenerate, renew and sustain:
- human communities,
- the environment,
- and ourselves for the sake of the world God created.
