As a living body of Jesus Christ, our vision at North Suburban Mennonite Church is to be a Christ-centered community, embodying Christ-like compassion, living with Christ-led courage.
To live with Christ-led courage, we will follow in Jesus' footsteps as He shapes our convictions and empowers us to live our His commands. We will be peacemakers in word and deed, finding and advocating nonviolent resolution to conflicts. We will live in an environmentally responsible and economically just manner to honor and sustain all of God's creation. We will live as true disciples, conforming to Christ, set apart from the world.
To understand what Christ-led courage is, we look toward the example of Jesus and the way he demonstrated courage in the face of temptation and societal conventions by acting on his convictions.
Some of the ways we show courage are a testament to our convictions.
