Our core values

Living Contemplatively

We seek to be fully present to life as it is, purposeful in our approach to living and grateful for our blessings. We are pilgrims on a journey, being transformed by our experience and moving with faith toward Christ's vision of health and wholeness for all.

Loving Inclusively

We believe every human being is created in God's image. As Christians, we are called to love God and God's creations, ourselves, our neighbors, strangers, the marginalized and our enemies. We value differences and honor diversity, recognize unique perspectives, talents and experiences, and learn from each other.

Sharing Generously

We invest our time, talent and treasure in our community, knowing with God's help we can do more together than by ourselves. We share and speak openly about our successes and failures, hopes and fears, dreams and doubts, trusting that our real stories connect us to God and to one another.

Acting Justly

We aspire as disciples of Jesus, shaped by the biblical witness, to be instruments of justice, forgiveness and peace. We strive to humbly share Christ's love and light where we live, work, play and serve.
