Transforming ourselves through the full expression of Christ’s inclusive love.

Transforming ourselves
Transforming ourselves through the full expression of Christ’s inclusive love.

A few weeks ago, I brought forward Resurrection’s Vision, Mission, and Core Values in a sermon. These are also called Guiding Statements. I think it’s important to outline them more completely for you so that you may seek to live fully into them. So here they are:

Our vision is to boldly experience, engage, and embody our faith to transform ourselves and the world into the full expression of Christ’s inclusive love. 

We grow in inclusivity and love in action. Wherever people are on their spiritual journey, they experience the liberation of God’s grace. We are a catalyst for healing, acceptance, and positive change.  

Building an increasingly engaged congregation, we mobilize members to serve in new and expanding ministries. Our movement attracts new congregants who reflect the diversity of our larger population. 

As we embody God’s unconditional love, we are a growing force for compassion, justice, and equality for all people. In our quest for justice, we partner with other communities and organizations. We stand for the inherent dignity of all of God’s creation. 

Our mission is to demonstrate God’s unconditional love to all people through Christ-like action. 

Resurrection MCC is open to everyone. We share the love of God with all people just as they are. We experience a relevant spirituality that is both positive and practical, filled with liberating hope and unconditional love. 

We are an inclusive and diverse congregation. We welcome people of all races, cultures, spiritual backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities. Because our faith is rooted in the ministry and teachings of Jesus, we respect those who connect with God through other spiritual paths. 

Through Christ-like action we seek to love God and love our neighbor by doing justice, practicing kindness, and walking humbly with God.  

Our Core Values·     

Inclusion: Love is our greatest moral value. Inclusion is a primary focus of our ministry. We believe that all people, as they are and where they are, should be welcomed at God’s table.·     

Community: Our deep desire is to offer a safe and open community for people to worship, learn, share, and grow in their faith. We are committed to equipping ourselves and each other to do the work that God has called us to do in the world.·     

Spiritual Transformation: A message of liberation guides our ministry. We believe that when people are invited to experience God through the life and ministry of Christ, lives are transformed.·     

Justice: We are committed to uplifting all people and standing with those who suffer under the weight of oppressive systems. We are guided by our commitment to global human rights. 

May it be so. Amen.
