Q. What is our mission?
A. To glorify the Triune God by enjoying and loving Him forever.
Writing down one’s Vision and Mision is a funny thing (maybe a little too modern), but the fact is, we are guided by the Trinity and our enjoyment of him, so perhaps it does us good to put these things down on paper and clarify to ourselves and others what it is we are doing.
