Epiphany Lutheran Church Vision Statement

A caring and inclusive Christian community, working to make a difference

through prayer, worship and open engagement.

Epiphany Lutheran Church Core Values

Epiphany’s core value is love, expressed through grace, faithfulness,

welcoming new people and ideas, social justice and stewardship.

Love:  Equipped by the teaching of the Scriptures and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we care for everyone as God cares for us, without condition or judgement.

Grace:  Grace is God’s gift of love and redemption, freely given through the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and we strive to pass it on through our words and actions.

Faithfulness:  God is faithful to his people, constant in his mercy and goodness. Trusting in him, we are called to be faithful to God and to one another through our actions of mercy, goodness and trust.

Welcoming people and ideas:  We strive to be an inclusive and accepting community.

Social Justice:  We promote equality for all, regardless of age, physical abilities, ethnicity, gender sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, and religious practices and beliefs. We assist people to have equal access to resources, health, well-being, justice and opportunities.

Stewardship:  We are not owners, but stewards of all that comes into our lives – income, property, our environment, time, talents and our very selves. We are called to utilize, manage and grow the resources God provides, for the glory of God and the betterment of His creation, now and for the future.
