Our Church is both a family and a community. Members of a family are bound together by shared origins–a shared source of life. Members of a community are bound together by a common purpose–to engage in a work together, achieving a shared mission or goal.
As brothers and sisters in Christ, who is our source of spiritual life, we claim the One God as our Father. We share Jesus’ life, we also share His mission. We are created and redeemed not for our own benefit alone, but to continue His active presence in our world, keeping alive the hope of eternal life for all to see.
