The Mission of Inter-Church Ministries of Erie County is to be a network of Christian Churches committed to cooperation for the greater good of the religious community and people of Erie County, Pennsylvania.



The Vision of Inter-Church Ministries of Erie County is to:

Witness to Christ through unity among Christian churches,

Encourage interfaith cooperation,

Share resources with those in need, and to

Do nothing separately that can be done better together. 




In the spirit of Micah, “This is what God asks of you, only this:  to act justly, to love tenderly, to walk humbly with your God” and centered in the gospel of Jesus Christ, we claim these Core Values to guide us in carrying out our mission and realizing our vision:

Community: “With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bear with one another in love.  There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called.” Ephesians 4: 2,4

Common Good: “The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life… See, before God I am as you are; I too was formed from a piece of clay.” Job 33: 4,6

Compassion:  “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as God in Christ forgives you.” Ephesians 4:32
