Vision and Values

VISION 2016

In five years God will see us

  • welcoming all God’s children;
  • sharing Christ’s love with others;
  • intentionally and actively building our faith to understand God’s purpose for us;
  • using our physical resources sustainably to honor God; and
  • celebrating God’s love with abandon.

CORE VALUES

We commit to living out God’s love through:

  • Compassion
  • Learning
  • Inclusion
  • Faith

We commit to living out God’s love through:

Compassion

Our Church believes that the committed life centers in compassion shown to all of God’s children in our local community and in the whole of the world.

Learning

Our Church believes that all Christians need to develop new ways of understanding how our faith intersects with our own life stories and with the stories of others through interaction with the Scriptures,  with each other and with interpreters of the world around us.

Inclusion

Our Church believes that all of us grow as we connect with the people in the world around us and with the world at a distance.   We embrace diversity in membership, culture and religious tradition.

Faith

Our Church believes that the core of why we meet is centered in the faith we proclaim.   That faith has historic roots in the creeds and confessions of the Reformed churches.   Our history is forever in conversation with our brothers and sisters around us, inside and outside of faith.
