Mission and Vision

 

Biblical Purpose:

       to be the intersection between faith and real life

 

St. Peter's Vision:

We will actively live out our faith so that our local community is connected to God’s transforming power

We see this happening as…

  • Individuals turn compassion into action
  • People walk beside one another through difficult times
  • Our local community becomes a culture that glorifies and honors God and His teaching
  • People realize they need a relationship with God      
  • Christ is present in homes, building stronger families through life transitions and reducing the divorce rate
  • Children are taught and sent from the classroom to serve in the community
  • Neighbors befriend one another and realize they are of value to Christ and to one another
  • Neighborhoods become safe, open gathering places
  • Individuals change from being selfish and self-serving to those who embrace Biblical values
  • Individuals come alongside one another, sharing their time, talent, and resources

 

Core Strategies:
