GUM Vision and Mission Black Red.png

The vision of GUMchurch is to actively live the example of Jesus.

We do this by practicing:

Radical Hospitality

Passionate Worship

Risk-taking Mission and Service

Intentional Faith Development

Extravagant Generosity


We value questions and different perspectives

GUMchurch is a safe place to ask difficult questions and express varying opinions. People are respected and able to participate in open and honest conversations.

We value diversity

We understand and appreciate that everyone has various and distinct gifts that are vital to the body of Christ. Therefore, we respect, listen to, and welcome all with love and support.

We value the Bible and biblical scholarship

We believe that the Bible is timeless and that its lessons shape our daily living. People of all ages are encouraged to engage in intentional faith development.

We value all people and treat each as having sacred worth

We are called and challenged to love one another without exception. We are accountable to each other; forgive each other; and love, support, and encourage each other.

We value living like Jesus as much as believing in Jesus

Beliefs should positively impact the world through concrete actions. We use our spiritual gifts in service with others.
