Our Values

Reflect Diversity | Serve with Humility

Affirmation of Welcome: Border Servant Corps seeks to live out a vision of service, faith, and caring, imagining a world where peace and justice are pursued through non-violence, honoring each other and the earth we share. The vision of faith contrasts with what often seems to be prevailing expressions of violence and oppression through which power and control are gained and maintained. BSC draws inspiration from Micah 6:8: What does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God?


Commitment to Inclusion & Non-Discrimination: Border Servant Corps rejoices in the richness of diversity as expressed in various lifestyles, ages, cultures, political involvement, educational experiences, and faiths. We support, affirm, and challenge one another in a safe setting.


Reconciling in Christ: Border Servant Corps is a ministry of Peace Lutheran Church, a Reconciling in Christ organization. Our commitments are (language used from Reconciling in Christ materials):

  • Vision – To keep expanding the welcome, liberating those who are forced to live in the margins. To keep dismantling barriers and building bridges.

  • Mission – To advocate for the acceptance, full participation, and liberation of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions within the Lutheran Church.

  • Values – We believe that God values and embraces each person as a beloved child, that the Spirit gives a diversity of gifts for the common good, and that Jesus Christ calls us to work for justice.
