Churches

Our first value statement is
Congregationally Based—At the heart of our movement are our church congregations; brought together by the Holy Spirit to grow in our faith as we engage in mission.

This is the first horizon of TrueCity’s vision–
Our vision for churches is that whole congregations who have embraced their identity as a people formed for God’s mission. These congregations are increasingly identifying and engaging with their neighbourhoods. They are open and welcoming to everyone, and involved in many aspects of the life of the neighbourhood. They serve others sacrificially and generously, and allow themselves to be served and shaped by the experiences and insights of others. These congregations are cultivating community around practices of Word and Sacrament and indwelling the story of God’s redemptive and loving involvement in the world. Emphasizing presence over program, they are the local embodiments of God’s reign and mission in this city.
