God’s Mission

God's mission is the restoration and reconciliation of all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.

(100 Word Version)

God loved into creation - the universe, earth, humanity.

It was diverse, and it was good.

Human sin entered and distorted our relationship with God, one another, and creation.

God yearns to make all whole again. This is God's mission.

God chose and liberated a people, sent the law and the prophets.

God came in Jesus, fully human and fully divine.

In Jesus' life, death and resurrection we are restored to unity with God and each other. 

God sent the Holy Spirit, empowering the Body of Christ.

God co-missions us in baptism to participate in God's mission of restoration and reconciliation.
