To be a gospel-centered church
in the East Lake community,
representing God’s kingdom
through reconciliation, justice and mercy,
as taught by our Lord Jesus Christ
in the Scriptures.
To surface our unconscious cultural assumptions and majority privileges and yield them in love to others.
To affirm and endorse the assets in our community, especially the gifts and participation of minority cultures.
To accept as a body our call to the discomfort and tension in cross cultural ministry and our commitment to communicate and reconcile when it arises.
To promote diversity not as an end in itself but as an opportunity to demonstrate the love and unity of Jesus Christ through his Spirit.
