The Six Great Ends

The Book of Order states that the six great ends of the church are:

Worship:
The maintenance of divine worship. When Jesus said that the first and greatest commandment is to love the Lord
your God with all of your heart, strength, soul and might, he set worship at
the heart and center of life. We gather for worship to glorify God and to
allow God to impact our lives anew.
Fellowship:
The shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God We gather in communities of support to heal, pray and serve, to care for and learn from one another, and to experience life together.
Discipleship:
The exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the World. Following the way of Jesus, we seek to be for others the embodiment of his love and truth. While we are not perfect, we believe together we can give the world a glimpse of the One God who calls broken, unique individuals into a new community that serves and loves unconditionally. Therefore we strive to discover and use our God-given gifts to build up the Body of Christ.

Evangelism:
The proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind. When coupled with our actions, our stories can inspire and bring hope by proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior of our troubled world. Therefore we strive to be comfortable communicating our faith.
Mission:
The promotion of the social righteousness. Faith is action, and we seek to act on our beliefs passionately, following the way of Jesus. We have the opportunity to make a difference. That's why we leverage both our resources and our selves in pursuit of tangible results.
