What is God calling you to do to close the gap between the world as it is and the world as it should be?
When Jesus spoke of the Kingdom of God, he was speaking of the world not as it is, but as it should be. As a congregation, we believe God calls us to actively close the gaps that exist between the world as it is today and the way it should be in our lives, across our community, and around the world. We have identified a long-term vision that serves as a framework for ministry and leads to church-wide strategies which are revised annually under the leadership of the Church Council. Our Vision is to significantly close four gaps by the year 2030.
