Welcome to the
CHRIST'S MISSION, OUR MISSION
This is ONE way "We Proclaim Jesus Christ..."
From the church's short Mission Statement:
We are a people on a journey together, continuously learning together how to perform these tasks for Jesus, for His purposes, and the healing of the world.
The link buttons at left will take you to a growing number of testimonies, submitted by our "Seniors for Christ" group, and others in our area congregations around the Mission Center, to help share with you the good news of how Jesus has been at work in their lives.
Through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, we experience God-our creator, sustainer, companion, and source of life. Because we believe that God continues to be revealed, both to groups and to individuals, we remain open to new understandings. Our journey of discipleship embraces insight from scripture, prayer, nature, history and our own faith community.
Worldwide, each of our congregations is a warm, participative community where we worship God, take part in baptism and the Lord's Supper, and enjoy fellowship. We respect-and use-the gifts and talents of each person, from oldest to youngest. In neighborhood, school, workplaces and organizations, we serve God by caring for each other, for all people, and for each self.
We promote communities of joy, hope, love, and peace.
The "Peaceful Kingdom" that the prophet Isaiah envisioned: where the lion and the lamb, led by a child, can lie down together: and where the earth is full of the knowledge of God.
Whether one labels it Zion, shalom, or God's kingdom on earth, it starts right here, right now. This is the great task to which we've been called: not to wait for a coming kingdom, but to work faithfully and practically -today- toward wholeness for all creation. Community of Christ is who we are. Together with God, we participate in building a world of reconciliation, justice, and an active, redemptive peace for all.
