Values that guide sustainability:

  • Respect for God's Creation

We recognize that all of creation is sacred and must not be abused or misused.

  • Personal responsibility for sustainable living

Each individual is responsible to avoid causing harm to creation, including human beings.

  • Integrity

Actions must be consistent with beliefs.

  • Interdependence of all creation

Every person, and every action, has ripple effects that are often not anticipated or perceived.

  • Intellectual humility

We recognize that we do not, and never will know everything. We shall be open to new knowledge and changing perspectives.

  • Accountability

Progress can only be known through honest assessment of our actions measured in terms of the vision, mission and goals.
