Vision
Transforming the world by living out Christ’s courageous love.

Mission Statement
Seek the Sacred • Commit to Love • Empower to Serve

Core Values
Discipleship
As members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we are committed to following Jesus Christ with open minds and loving hearts as we work to bring about wholeness in a fragmented world.

Curiosity
We don’t pretend to have all the answers, and we don’t shy away from big questions about who God is and what God is calling us to do.

Inclusivity
God created you to be you. We welcome all people, understanding that our conversations and relationships, and thus our work, become richer when we listen to each other, rather than when we turn people away.

Vulnerability
Together we create brave spaces where we can be honest and open about where we are on our spiritual journey. It is in these brave spaces where we do the work of discernment to uncover what God is calling us to do, both as individuals and as a community of faith.

Generosity
We respond to God’s abundance with gratitude as we invest in God’s calling for our community. Our giving doesn’t begin and end with our finances. We commit our spiritual gifts and talents back to God.

Compassion
Jesus’ compassionate spirit is at the heart of everything we do. We are called to care for one another as we experience each other’s vulnerability, and we are equipped to carry that compassion into the world.
