  • In The Essential And Central Actions Of Worship, Education, And Service We Are Transformed And Called To Live Out The Radical Transforming Of The World.
  • The Reality Of Our Faith And The Shape Of Our Purpose Originate In The Dynamic Interplay Between Our Comprehension Of The Triune God (“Growing In God’s Love”) And Our Call To Action In The World (“Changing Lives”).

The open arms of Jesus demonstrate the posture God calls us to have for our neighborhood and world: openness, welcome, hospitality, inclusiveness.
