Who We Are
Our mission: We are committed to God's call to create a community where all people can grow, flourish, and rejoice.
We are a welcoming and inclusive community dedicated to sharing God's love with the world. Our commitment to service and supporting vulnerable neighbors stems from our belief in building a compassionate and supportive environment. We embrace diverse viewpoints, recognizing that our faith journey is ever-evolving and that we must remain relevant to meet the needs of our community.
Inclusive to the core, we uphold the belief that all are welcome at God's table, irrespective of background, identity, or length of stay. We value diversity in all aspects, acknowledging the richness it brings to our congregation. As we face future challenges, we endeavor to deepen and expand our congregation’s understanding of our role in our community, guided by God's will, striving to bring peace and justice to a hurting world.
At the heart of all of our ministries, we hope to provide comfort and understanding to all on their spiritual path, valuing every individual's unique perspective and experience. We view our faith as a gift meant to be shared through acts of love and kindness rather than insistence. Through shared resources, services, and values, we remain a loving and supportive community. We aspire to deepen our understanding of God's word, love, and forgiveness, transforming these insights into gifts that we share with others.
We encourage open dialogue and discussion, recognizing that questions can be just as important as answers. As we look toward our future, our focus is to nurture an environment that allows individuals to define and explore their unique spiritual beliefs, fostering growth and development for all. With open hearts, open minds, and open doors, we invite everyone to become part of Saint Mark's, to experience and share God's all-encompassing, liberating, life-giving love.
