The Vision of the Diocese of New Jersey(Adopted at 2007 Convention)

The Diocese of New Jersey is one family of diverse and unique congregations, belonging to Jesus Christ and belonging to one another, for Jesus’ sake.

Together, we are a missionary community, celebrating the abundant life of Christ (John 10:10) and sharing that life with the world that God so loves (John 3:16). Our vision is to build up the Body of Christ and reach out to the world in Christ’s name as we:

  • share the Good News simply and genuinely;
  • worship the Lord radiantly and reverently;
  • serve the poor boldly and strive for justice passionately;
  • give of our resources, our abilities and our lives joyously and generously; and
  • seek continual spiritual renewal for a closer walk with Christ.

This is our vision of our Diocese, flourishing, to the Glory of God.

Above all and before all and as the sure and certain means of all, we pray:

Lord, in your mercy, make New Jersey new.
