“He will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.”
– Hebrews 6:10
We affirm that the greatest force in the universe is the power of self-giving love: a love that is inclusive, ever abundant, and meant to be expressed through our action in the world. Motivated by this love, inspired by Christ’s example, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are doers, acting in the world around us, through outreach and ministry to God’s creation and to people of need in our community.
