Here's the mission statement I wrote when I was on staff at the church in City of History. Though it was (quite) a while ago, I don't want to lose it, so again I'm going with the online option! (Vanity note? The denom's deployed mission staff declared this mission statement a model and said he'd show it to other congregations as an illustration of what they could do.)We are the people of God, forgiven and set free by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; by the power of the Holy Spirit we are called together and sent into the world as witnesses to his resurrection. God calls us, a servant people, to proclaim in word and action the presence of the risen Lord to all those whom our lives touch, especially in this community.
