MISSION = Direct Service Social Justice Advocacy

The Mission of the Church is “to restore all people to unity to God and each other in Christ” (BCP, 855). The term “mission” has often been narrowed to represent the work of Christians beyond the bounds of the church building, such as feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, and taking the Gospel to other countries and cultures. Mission is broader than direct service to our neighbors and encompasses working for policies at all levels of civil society to ensure that there are no hungry or homeless people, whether they are in our backyards or across oceans
