Our Mission

Disciples of God | Disciples of Love

Our Vision

Making faith and church matter by becoming apostles to those who are searching for God and Love

Our Strategy

We strive to discover the Holy Spirit acting in our daily lives. He challenges us to creatively live our faith. We take our faith seriously, not just conveniently or traditionally. We take an upbeat path in order to joyfully celebrate our diversity as a reflection of God's Love.

We want to live out the joy of the Discipleship through our Worship and Service

Our Fundamentals: "GRACE"

GOD is the source of our lives. We seek to honor God in all areas of life from worship to sacrificial giving of time, treasure, and talent.

 

RADICAL LIFE is called upon us. It is not a mere Christian lifestyle but an honest, profound and genuine becoming other Christs today. We strive to practice daily prayer, Bible reading and full participation in the Sacraments

 

APOSTLESHIP - We believe that we are called to reach out to those who need God and Love. We are seeking those who are marginalized, for "the stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone. By the LORD has this been done; it is wonderful in our eyes." (Psalm 118: 22-23)

 

COMMUNITY - We believe that God called us to grow in community and relationship with one another and God. We achieve that by celebrating our richness of diversity at large and in Small Groups.

 

ENGAGEMENT - We believe that faith without action is dead (cf. James 2:14-26). We are being called to actively engage in ministry and missions as God has gifted us to act. Thus, we bring Love to others individually and as a church community.

Our Values

Worship

We believe and follow the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council. The Eucharist is the center of our faith, which we seek to live and serve as disciples of Christ. Excellence and diversity in our worship honors God.

We value excellence and diversity.

Discipleship

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. We strive to bring that Word into our daily lives. We believe that God’s Word has a power to change us and others. We seek that transformation.

We value life-changing transformation.

 

Community

We believe that Christ made us one family, one community. We strive to build a church in a community at large and Small Groups, where people are more intimately open to see, feel and act in order to change.

We value our community.

 

Service

We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifted us to become more engaged and open to our community and beyond: in our city, country, and the world.

We value the challenge of serving others.

 

Apostleship

We believe that Jesus came to seek and save the lost. We look for the opportunity to invite others to join us. We are open the other ones around us. We engage in and maintain partnerships.

We value growth
