"The depth of the mission of the Christian Church exceeds so much more than separate mission "activities" or "projects." Christian mission is the pouring out of love to others because Christ first loved us and being instruments of that love across the globe. Mission grounds the Church in the theological conviction of Jesus Christ's gospel of love and peace for all people. Here at Fairmount, we welcome all people because the Bible teaches us that Christ welcomed all people: the orphan, the sick, the widow, the stranger, the alien, etc. In all times and places, we are a congregation that stands firm in Christ's command to love our neighbor as ourselves and to show Christ's welcoming love to all."
