As a mid-council of the Presbyterian Church (USA) we affirm these guiding principles and acknowledge and declare that:
The mission of the Synod of Living Waters is to witness to Jesus Christ in partnership with our presbyteries, their congregations and the General Assembly.
We envision the Synod and its presbyteries directing their life, work and organization to provide a primary focus on congregations. We see strong, vital, witnessing congregations that prepare their members to live their faith as keystones for the service of the whole church in the whole world.
We minister to our world today, discerning by grace where God is leading us tomorrow, while honoring our heritage as a covenant people.
