Our Mission

The mission of the Church is God’s mission: to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. We promote this mission through our prayers and worship, proclaiming the Gospel, and through a promotion of justice, peace, and love. We carry out our mission through the ministry of all its ministers (the ministers of the Church are the laity, bishops, priests, and deacons.
—Adapted from the Catechism found on page 855 of the The Book of Common Prayer

The Five Marks of Mission

The Mission of the Church Is the Mission of Christ:
To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom;
To teach, baptize and nurture new believers;
To respond to human need by loving service;
To seek to transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation;
To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.
