To help us stay on track and accomplish the mission we have set for ourselves, the following core values will tell us what it takes to see our vision accomplished and chart the pathway by which our mission/vision can travel.  These core  values (as adopted by the congregation in January, 2008) are:

  1. Building relationships, both within the congregation and outside our walls in the Greater Centralia Community;
  2. Transforming lives; and
  3. Pursuing ministry in all its forums.  These may include not just Music and Worship, but also Christian Education; Evangelism and Church Growth; Stewardship and Church Finance; Mission Interpretation in our Community, the Illinois South Conference and around the world; Parish Life and Leadership and the Ministry of Buildings and Grounds.
