All of us are sinners, but we find grace and peace and forgiveness and salvation through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  In life and in death we belong to God.  Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, Whom alone we worship and serve.  In gratitude to God, empowered by the Spirit, we strive to serve Christ in our daily tasks and to live holy and joyful lives.

This means:

Our worship is to be Christ-centered and directed toward God.

We embrace and support all who are within our midst.

We endorse and support with our gifts the needs in our city where we can have the greatest impact.

We make a concerted effort to grow in faith, understanding, knowledge, spirit, and numbers.
