Our Mission Your Mission
is to proclaim the good news,
directing our entire lives toward
for which Jesus Christ was sent
for which God calls all.
As Jesus was sent to show
God's love to the world,
we are sent to make Christ,
to make God,
visible by our very being,
by sharing our love, faith, and hope.
