At the Church of the Good Shepherd we believe in the inclusive love and goodness of God, whose good news we hear in Jesus, the Good Shepherd, through the Holy Spirit at work in all of creation, and in the gifts each of us brings to our life together as a community.

The community of the Good Shepherd creates and nurtures a place where God’s goodness can flourish and where each of us can grow in compassion, love, and understanding.
