Saint Joseph Mission Church

A Progressive Church in the Old Catholic Tradition that Welcomes All

Our Mission

 

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 "We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed."


Our Mission at Saint Joseph Mission Church is simple: To share the Gospel of Jesus to ALL People. We are an open and affirming parish community of the Old Catholic Church inviting people of every age, race, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, gender expression, means, ability, and spiritual tradition to join together with us in the love of God and service to our neighbor. Saint Joseph Mission Church recognizes that God is everywhere and not just in a building or Cathedral; we will travel to you to share the Good News, to offer sacraments and blessing when and where you need us.


Creed

Many faces, one faith....working to serve the Lord

 A communion in faith requires a common language. Therefore, whoever says "We believe" pledges himself to what others believe at Saint Joseph Mission. We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. We believe in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the Resurrection of the body and life everlasting. And we believe that all people, no matter who they are, what they look like, where they born, whom they love or what they have done; are all welcome to the alter of God.
