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.
