Shalom Mennonite Congregation is committed to following Christ in life as expressed in its congregational covenant. It desires to be a Christian community that honors God through its worship and the lives of its members. It seeks to be a community where God's love transcends all human barriers that oppress and exclude people. Among such barriers are those of race, culture, gender, social and economic status, as well as misunderstanding and prejudice. Central to its purpose is the evangelical call to share the good news of Jesus Christ with all people. It is intentional about its ecumenical relations and its solidarity with the mission of the global church. An integral part of its vocation is to work for justice, peace and the integrity of creation in the world.
