OUR PURPOSE AS THE BODY OF CHRIST AT ST. PETER'S
Be rooted in Christ,
cultivate loving relationships,
reflect Jesus in all we do
for the transformation of lives
& the growth of God's Kingdom.
Everyone who comes onto the property of St. Peter's (members, guest, staff) will be warmly welcomed and treated with kindness and respect.
We believe that our strength lies in the diversity in each of our individual staff and congregational members. We will welcome all people to our ministries and be open to consider any idea or expression of ministry that is not forbidden in the scriptures.
We believe that the work of the church is more important than any one person. Therefore, we will not elevate ourselves or our personal opinions above the God-honoring work of the Body of Christ.
QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE
The culture of St. Peter's is a culture that will constantly seek to be more effective in its work. We will not offer anything less than our best as we seek to do ministry and we will foster an environment to be more effective in all that we do.
THE PEOPLE OF ST. PETER'S REFLECT THE HEART OF GOD
Our Core Values are the essence of who we are as a congregation. Led by the Spirit, “The People of St. Peter’s will reflect the heart of God.” This is lived out by all who consider St. Peter’s their church home, who are on the St. Peter’s staff, and who are students of our school.
BY WALKING ALONGSIDE ONE ANOTHER
The People of St. Peter’s walk alongside each other regardless of their situation. An environment of transparency exists where we all acknowledge that we are vulnerable, experience turbulence, and have things with which we struggle.
BY DEMONSTRATING THE HEART OF A DISCIPLE
We are all equipped to demonstrate the heart of God (as described in our 12 Declaration Statements) to all with whom we come into contact regardless of circumstances or challenges including: intellectual, physical, emotional, economic, cultural, and others.
BY REACHING BEYOND OUR CAMPUS
We are partnering with others in the Body of Christ to bring the presence of Jesus to those beyond our walls.
WITH A PERSONALIZED APPROACH
We all realize each person is unique; therefore, our approach to ministry will be personalized when needed.
