Our mission is to be an agent of God's love and grace in our community and
around the world. For us, this mission is expressed most clearly through Jesus' two
core values as found in Mark,
"The most important one," answered
Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love
the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all
your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your
neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." Mark 12:29-31
