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
Our staff work hard to spread God's love throughout the community. They evaluate their actions through Jesus' words in Mark 12:29-31.
