Our Vision

Our vision is defined most clearly by our Purpose and Mission statements.

What is the purpose of St. Andrew’s?
We exist to worship God and be good stewards of his creation.

What is the mission of St. Andrew’s?
Our mission is to transform the world through Christ — one heart at a time — by bringing all people into membership in the family of God, welcoming them fully by assimilating them into the life of the church, discipling them to follow Jesus and equipping them for ministry.

Membership, Assimilation, Discipleship and Equipment for Ministry are steps along the path toward becoming fully mature disciples of Christ — the path toward becoming what we call M.A.D.E. in Christ.

Our Values
One of our mottos is “The church with the heart of Christ.” Part of what makes us the “church with the heart of Christ” is a set of commonly held values that define us as a church. Those values are defined in a series of six questions from the Baptismal Covenant in the Book of Common Prayer.
