Vision and Values

Vision:

Changing Lives, Sharing Christ.

The community of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd believes that, as we grow in our faith in God through Jesus Christ, our lives are necessarily changed and enriched. Through our transformed lives we seek to share Christ’s love, by our witness and service to all His beloved children, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all… And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for him who died for them and was raised again….Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:14-17
