Our Vision, Mission and Beliefs

St. Mark’s Mission – Invite, Excite, and Spiritually Ignite our Community for Jesus Christ.

The pastoral vision for the St. Mark’s is for each member to have a substantive ongoing discipleship relationship with at least one person to whom s/he is intentionally contributing to the other persons Christian formation and with at least one other person who contributes to the member’s Christian formation.
