Serving Our Local, National, And Global Communities



Serving Our Local, National, and Global Communities

Our Mission & Vision

At St. James, our mission is to create a transformational church for the digital age. St. James embraces Christ’s teachings as a way of life, and is an inclusive, relevant, and dynamic spiritual community whose mission is spreading the Gospel to the world.  


God has called us to serve those in need in our local, national and global communities. At St. James, we are committed to accomplishing this by reaching out to the underserved with compassion and action in the way of Christ.
