Values are fundamental principles that help guide our decisions. At St. John’s, these are the values that are especially important to our congregation: What matters to God is what matters to us. We try not to spend our time on things that God wouldn’t consider high priority.
Our focus is external as well as internal. We serve one another in ministry and those outside the church in mission.
We are a people of the Bible. The Word of God is our highest authority and guide.
Christian education is valuable to people of all ages. School ministry is one of our primary learning environments. Relationships matter. People grow through healthy relationships with one another that stem from a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We want to be a church where God’s grace is lived. We believe it is love that draws people to Christ…a love that deals in grace and forgiveness. Excellence honors God and inspires people. We strive for excellence in all our endeavors.
We exist to equip the members of God’s family to extend the church of Christ to the world.
We are all members of God’s family! You Matter!
As we grow in His Word, we are equipped to extend His love to others so they know that they matter, too. We believe that love—a love that deals in grace and forgiveness— is what draws people to Christ. We continually work to improve our relationships to each other and to our community, because relationships matter. We grow through healthy relationships with one another, which stem from our relationship with Jesus Christ.
