Mission Statement of St. Paul’s Church

We are:

     A spirited, compassionate community of faith living in covenant with God and each other through understanding and practicing the teachings of Christ.

We believe that we are called to:

    a.  Welcome all regardless of background, lifestyle and ability, celebrate our diversity and claim our unity, accept other as we find them, or as they may become.

     b. Serve our neighborhood, our country and our world, minister to those of every life stage, mend the broken and heal the hurt. 

      c. Work for justice and peace in the face of inequity and strife.

      d. Honor our community’s rich history and Wesleyan traditions.  

     e. Grow personally in knowledge and love

        f. Be a safe space and a quiet corner in a troubled, weary world.
