Our mission is to share the love of Christ with all people for the glory of God.
Our Vision: Honoring God, helping others.
We glorify God by reaching out to others through love, grace and service. In so doing, we witness to God’s call for justice and human dignity. Olivet is deeply committed to serving those in need, both near and far. With the leadership of our Mission Committee, we are involved in the following activities.
Olivet is a very progressive congregation in its thinking and actions. We believe that in order to reach out to the greater society we have to have an open mind about all the evolving social changes. However, our faith and belief in God’s scripture does not change. We trust in God to guide us in dealing with the new ideas and changes in our society and to be the guiding light in our lives.
Our economic and educational advantages challenge us to wrestle with what it means to be faithful in an affluent culture: to be Christian disciples in a busy and competitive world; to practice stewardship of our treasure, time and talents; to build families and instill Christian values in our children in an increasingly secular society, and to love and support one another in times of sorrow, joy, crisis and celebration. As a congregation we respect the integrity with which theological views differ and acknowledge the capacity to perceive the biblical basis and Christian credibility of other perspectives.
The diversity of our congregation speaks of our commitment to equality. We believe in the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church unified in Christ. This is reflected in our constant desire to participate in ecumenical and interfaith services and activities.
