Mission & Values

Our mission and values

The mission of the Church of the Holy Cross is to welcome all in God’s love to worship, pray, learn, share and grow in service to God and our neighbors. For us some of what that means is the following:

Whoever you are, wherever you come from, if you want to explore living your life in relationship to Jesus Christ, we are here for you as friends and companions on the way.

We are a community of faith that welcomes inquiring minds and yearning hearts. We won’t try to force upon you answers to questions you haven’t even asked yet – but we will be glad to help you pursue your questions and share with you some of our own, and the answers we have found to some of them.

Our life together is based on prayer and learning to pray together. Our experience of answered prayer is a series of miracles, and we don’t make a move that affects our common life without submitting it to prayer first.

Care for each other is an integral part of our community life. If you’re sick we will visit you; if you’re in need we will try to provide for you; if you want to share in our ministry to those in need among us we will welcome you.
