    About Us. OUR BELIEF, OUR VISION and OUR MISSION: We BELIEVE that all people have the capacity to be “creators of their own lives.” Our VISION is of a world filled with joyful, positive people who have taken charge of their own lives, who value themselves as worthy and capable, who practice personal and social responsibility, who interact nonviolently and compassionately with themselves.   The Book of Acts then gives a historical narrative of the Holy Spirit doing just what Jesus promised he would—speaking to the apostles, giving them boldness to bear testimony to Jesus as the crucified and risen Lord, confirming the blessing of the gospel to Jews, Samaritans, and Gentiles, and guiding and directing the church in its mission.
