St. John’s is an inclusive Christian community, a vibrant urban church with an unbreakable commitment to transform its mission and vision and values, its dreams and its hopes of a world filled with God’s love, into realities.
We believe that when the Bible says “for God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son” those words really speak of the whole world. Of everyone. Regardless of your age, gender, race, socioeconomic status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other characteristic, we invite you to be a part of our community.
St. John’s members understand that diversity is about inclusiveness and tolerance and giving all people an opportunity for spiritual growth; about helping to build a bridge across the abyss of our differences that has too long separated us; about recognizing all of our cultural backgrounds and all of our ideas and experiences so that we, as children of God, can better serve our neighbors wherever there is a need.
We hope that you’ll join us because diversity makes each of us stronger as together we learn more about living God’s love in the world and doing God’s work with grace, in trust, by faith, through action.
