United by baptism, we are called by God to carry out the Gospel mission of Jesus Christ, who came to serve, to challenge, and to teach. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are called to preach, to teach and to proclaim the Good News of Jesus with our lives, in both our actions and our words, evangelizing in the name of Jesus.
