Statement of Vision
This brief statement was written in the early 1990's following a detailed survey of Westminster's congregation.
We are a people of God,
Called as a community of believers in Jesus Christ,
Here, in this place,
Now, in this moment.
Together, we seek to know God's will for us.
We are a family within the family of God,
Caring for and encouraging one another,
Celebrating our joys,
Sharing our sorrows.
Together, we seek to grow in faith and understanding.
We are a people who strive to worship God,
Praying and praising, in common and alone,
Hearing God's word and responding,
In truth and in deed.
Together, we offer our lives and resources to God.
We are a people who want to share God's Good News,
Acting and speaking through God's love and grace,
To turn the stranger among us into a friend,
To bind up the world's wounds.
Together, we are in the process of becoming what God envisions of us.
