From our Regional Mission Plan...
The Northwest Regional Christian Church, committed to God's leading, seeks transformation in our life together. We have called this formal regional transformation process RISE. We commit ourselves to a shared ministry as a community of communities, grace-filled, forward thinking, and open to new possibilities.
We foster intentional relationships grounded in the love of Christ in all aspects of Regional life: between individuals, congregations, ecumenical and interfaith partners. Through our life together we support our congregations in the development and celebration of a faith-filled, collective life through holistic faith formation … facilitate sharing of resources between congregations; encourage habits and practices that lead to congregational transformation; develop innovative leadership; and nurture vital clergy.
In light of our oneness in Christ, we commit to be open, receptive and inclusive of all people, recognizing that we as individuals and together as a regional church will be transformed by our relationships with one another.
Challenged by the Word of God to live into God's purpose and promise... In our life together we desire to nurture and celebrate a culture of openness to new patterns of behavior and thinking as we support existing congregations and nurture new congregations for ministry into the evolving future of God's church
