Mission Initiatives

The five Mission Initiatives are blessings to the church. They guide us directly onto paths that help us make Christ’s mission our mission. Though the initiatives carry great importance and value individually, they work best in congregations and ministries that honor all five. In this holistic fashion, they help us know, be, and do as we serve Christ.
