Mission Values Priorities

We Believe

God is love, power, and splendor—and God is a mystery. His ways are far beyond us, but He still reaches out to us. God is infinite yet intimate, three yet one,
all-knowing yet all-forgiving.

A MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT DAVE WEIGLEY

As we transition from 2022 to 2023, what will be our support as we go into the future?

All of us have areas in life we would like to improve, and as we reflect on 2022, maybe we have some regrets, in a relationship with God, or with others, or maybe there’s something else in your life you want to address.

Why not think of the Bible as a bridge to transition from the past to the new--from what was to what could be?

Make it easy for visitors to find your church, and find various activities within your church by using the North American Division’s clear, professional, downloadable signage templates. (Find out more here.)
