Mission, Vision and Values

Our Mission …
To know God’s Word,
Do God’s work,
Live God’s love.
Our Vision….

To be a beacon of faith, compassion and justice for St. Louis, the wider faith community, and beyond.

Our core values….

- Community and fellowship. We are a Christian community where all can and do participate. Grounded in God’s love, we nurture one another.
- Open minds and hearts. We are all God’s children, and we accept and affirm our differences. God loves each of us unconditionally, and we reflect that love in our openness to others.
- Shared worship. Creative, participatory and expressive worship helps us encounter God and binds us together into the Body of Christ. The Spirit is at work through music, the Word, and celebration of our life together.
- A thinking faith. Young and old, we are all growing in our Christian formation. Inquiry and dialogue draw us to God and open us to the change needed in ourselves and the world.
- Mission and service. We are called to do God’s work of justice and peace. We seek to serve others as Jesus served, and to be transformed by the encounter.
