Who We Are
OUR VISION is to connect the people of East Dallas with God and with His people, so that we might behold God and become more like Him.
AUTHENTICITY - God knows us and loves us, so we seek to be honest about who we truly are, and we trust that in his grace God loves us in our brokenness.
HOSPITALITY - God has welcomed us and called us to himself, so we invite the people of East Dallas to connect with God and with his people.
MYSTERY - Through the redeeming love of the Son and the life-giving power of the Spirit, the Father calls us deeper into the divine life. We participate in this holy mystery through worship and community, through word and sacrament, and through the grace-charged gift of creation itself.
WHOLENESS/HEALING - In Christ we have seen both the face of God and the fullness of our humanity, so we trust God to transform us more and more into his image and likeness. As we are transformed, we are more and more able to love God and our neighbor.
ROOTEDNESS - Planted and established by God in Christ, we are called to East Dallas, to its people and its neighborhoods. Rooted in the soil of East Dallas, and nourished by the three life-giving streams of Scripture, Spirit, and Sacrament, we expect the slow work of growth together.
