OUR GUIDING VISION
Inspired by the Great Creator who provides and cherishes all things, challenged by the life and lessons of Jesus Christ, and transformed by the Spirit, we envision Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church as a place where:
WE PROCLAIM THE EXTRAVAGANT WELCOME OF CHRIST.
In a divided and disconnected world, we are a bridge that brings people together, responding to a deep longing to be in communion with all God’s people. We practice heroic hospitality, exemplified by our open communion table, where all may come to eat and drink, and our open membership, which welcomes all. We build bridges between cultures, among people of different faith traditions, to those in need, and to those who have been ostracized, wounded, or lost on their faith journeys. In a spirit of reconciliation, we look for opportunities to be more deeply connected to our brothers and sisters in Christ, to find common ground in spite of the barriers and fears that may separate us. We are proud to be part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and its work in the world.
GOD’S BOUNDLESS LOVE IS THE MODEL FOR THE WAY WE SERVE.
We take seriously God’s two greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind,” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” This love calls us to work for peace and justice—to serve those who experience hunger, poverty, homelessness, and discrimination, and to address the systems in our society that have marginalized so many. We are called to speak truth to power, and we respond boldly. Our service extends to those in need in our own backyard and around the globe. As a church family, we are blest by the ties that bind, celebrating with one another in times of joy, supporting each other in times of challenge, nurturing “beyond coffee hour” relationships that embrace everyone, from the youngest member to the oldest. When we stumble on challenges in our life together as a faith community, we ask the question:
We are delighted you are interested in the life and ministry of this congregation, and hope that what you find here will entice you to visit us in person – for the hospitality and witness of Mount Auburn must be experienced to be fully appreciated.
At Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church you will find a welcoming community of faith where you can worship God, ask your questions about doctrines, be yourself, and discover new ways to serve in our community and beyond. You will find a community with diverse opinions and a commitment to respect and value those differences. We want you to explore your faith, put your unique gifts to work, and join us in making a difference in our world.
Let us embrace you with the joy we have found in serving a God of love and grace.
