vision and values
COME - At Westminster you will find a warm and inviting community that is ready to welcome you wherever you are on your spiritual journey. All people are invited to come to our worship, join our mission, and participate in our educational opportunities.
ENCOUNTER - Everything we do is about helping you encounter God. Sometimes this encounter happens through the wonder of music, other times it occurs during a conversation over coffee or in an education class. Many experience God in our service projects, while others find God through participating in one of our many small groups.
GROW - Be ready. These encounters with God will cause you to grow. We want you be comfortable at Westminster, but not too comfortable! A faith in Jesus Christ is a living, moving, active realationship that propels us forward, shaping and forming us into the people God created us to be.
SERVE - It is our hope that as your faith grows you will find a greater desire to serve others. With this in mind we try to make it as easy as possible to serve right here in Akron.
These are the values we see Jesus employing in his minstry, and we seek to make them our values as well. Whenever we begin a new ministry, plan a new class, or engage in a mission program, we do so with these values in mind.
