Mission Statement:
    To present an acceptable form of worship to our Lord Jesus Christ, foster spiritual growth in our members, and proclaim the gospel and name of Jesus Christ through song and step.

Vision Statement:
    This year's vision for the United Soul Ensemble from Acts 2:41-42:

    "Those who accepted his message were baptised, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. They devoted themselves to the apostles' teachings and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." (NIV)

    We are in a time of new beginnings, and a time to feed the hungry. We should all be at a point of hunger for the word, instruction, fellowship (small groups sharing the word with one another), the breaking of bread (eating and just hanging out together), and prayer.

    It is important to keep in mind that service in the vision is not limited to U.S.E. but reaches out to the community.
