Men, women and children are drawn to believe the Gospel and

York City filled with faith, hope and love.

To make the Gospel of Jesus Christ known in Word and Deed

For the good of York City and the world.

We Value and Celebrate:

The Gospel-The Triune God’s story of grace revealed to us in the simplicity of the Word and Sacrament.

Growth-God’s gracious process of maturing us into Spirit-filled people.

The CityIts diverse people, neighborhoods, and places.

Hospitality-The way we extend God’s welcome and acceptance to each other.

CompassionEmpathy joined with generous holistic care for broken and hurting people.

How do I participate in the mission?

Presence-Be physically and spiritually present in weekly worship, Sunday discipleship classes and a Covenant Group. Extend that same presence to building relationships in the City and to celebrating the life of the City.

Serve-Find where your gifts are best utilized and put them to use for the good of the Church and the City.

Give-Be generous with all of your resources (money, time, home, etc.), sharing the Gospel with words and deeds.

Pray-frequently  for the Church, its Pastor, leaders, fellow church members and for York City.
