What does Telos mean?

Telos is a tricky Greek word that can be translated as “perfection” but is better translated as “purpose” or “wholeness.”

Telos is wholeness – not perfection; grace – not judgment. As an open community of believers gathering in Christian worship, fellowship and service, and seeking God’s path for our lives, we lean into telos, and affirm the full dignity and value of all people.

Telos means that God is, in all things, growing us into all that we were created to become in Christ.
