"The Mission of the people of the Diocese of East Carolina is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. As God has taken away our guilt and forgiven our sins, we call others to experience this restorative power through relationships in the abundant life of the congregation and the larger community. We are a people who continue to be restored and who are called and empowered to confess the faith of Christ crucified, proclaim his resurrection, and share in his eternal priesthood."
