We are a gathering of 150 churches in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Colorado, California, Illinois and Oregon, transformed and transforming, so that the very presence of Christ shows up in our communities as a life-giving blessing.
Live in the kingdom of God in such a way that it provokes questions for which the gospel is the answer. – Lesslie Newbegin
The Regional Synod of the Mid-Atlantics recognizes that the church needs to be responsive to the changing needs of the world in which we minister with the unchanging truth of God as revealed in the Scriptures and the person of Jesus Christ.
Our mission, vision and values therefore reflect ministry emphases that may be refined as the body of Christ continues to be built up and as the world around us continually requires fresh, relevant ministry.
The Regional Synod exists to assist classes in faithful witness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
• Building up the church of Jesus Christ
• Encouraging spiritual growth throughout our region
• Being open to the Holy Spirit’s leading for creative ways of furthering the gospel within our bounds
• People whom God loves
• Principles based on Scripture
• Processes that produce fruit
