Safe Harbor Family Church

Purpose, Mission, and Vision

 

Safe Harbor's purpose is to provide an inclusive community for worshipping God, reaching out in love to our neighbors, and providing education that helps members and friends in their spiritual journeys.

 

As a United Church of Christ congregation,

Our purpose is:
To love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength and our neighbor as ourselves (Mt. 22)

Our vision is:
United in Christ’s love, a just world for all.

Our mission is:
United in Spirit and inspired by God’s grace, we welcome all, love all, and seek justice for all.

 

The United Church of Christ has a history of "firsts." As the national denomination's website states, "We were the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, the first to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry. We were in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement.  Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country."
