The Mission Statement of St. Francis of Assisi is the same Mission Statement that Jesus gave his eleven disciples (the Great Commissioning) found in the last chapter of Matthew.
The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."
To help one another get to Heaven by building God’s Kingdom.
The servant leader is thoughtful, selfless, bold, takes courageous, swift action, plans ahead, is flexible and thinks fast on their feet and works hard and smart for Christ.
We are a community that seeks to unite legitimate expression of theology, liturgy, and social justice. We seek to be walking in step with the Church. We want to embrace the Church: never walking behind the Church; never ahead.
CULTURE OF PRAYER AND DISCIPLESHIP
We value a culture where we can encounter Christ, legitimately, every single day. We want to encourage others to encounter Christ and to make it easier and less intimidating grow in their relationship with Christ.
Regardless of size of household and composition – families are the lifeblood of our community and St. Francis is here to serve all of them with graciousness and a welcoming spirit and hospitality.
MANY PARTS ONE BODY
We are St. Francis, we are made of many parts, but we are one body in Christ.
