Our Vision and Mission

Our Vision   

Our vision is Shalom - God’s love, healing and justice at every level of life:   

Hearts We receive and reveal God’s gracious love, which brings to each person peace with God and peace within their deepest self.  

Relationships We are all invited into Christ’s new community, where all are equally valued, where none are diminished or abused, and where we learn to live in new life-giving ways that renew families, friends, co-workers and neighbors.  

World We join with the Spirit of Christ to oppose destructive evils within and around us,  including racism, oppression, poverty, and, with Christ, to bring God’s transforming realm of compassion, justice and peace among all people, nations and ethnic groups in our present world.  

Creation We live in a mutually-caring relationship with God’s entire creation, particularly with the land, forests, mountains and waters that bless us in the Pacific Northwest.  



Our Mission 

Toward this vision, we focus on three actions:  
Nurturing and Energizing existing Congregations and Ministries 
Cultivating new, experimental Ministries 
Growing Leaders
