Our Mission Statement
St. John the Baptist Catholic Church
is a community of baptized people
who have, as their common goals:
to love, model, teach, serve,
and celebrate Christ in our lives.
Committed to the Eucharist,
our Bread of Life,
and guided by the Holy Spirit,
we are dedicated to service
to God’s people
and center our faith-life
around liturgical celebrations,
the Gospel, and prayer.
Based on the teachings
of the Second Vatican Council,
we reach out to all people lovingly,
acknowledging their uniqueness
and dignity, and treat all with respect,
tolerance, and acceptance,
having the love of Jesus as our core.
"And the Word becamce flesh
and made His dwelling
and we saw His glory,
the glory as of the Father's
full of grace and truth."
Jn 1, 14.
