Our Mission Statement
The mission statement that guides the work of CPG and the CPF Board of Trustees is provided below:
The Church Pension Fund aspires to be the trusted provider of comprehensive, cost-effective retirement, health and life insurance benefits to the Episcopal Church, its clergy and lay employees. Consistent with this central mission, The Church Pension Fund also serves the Episcopal Church through the development of other programs and services as approved from time to time by the General Convention and the Board of Trustees. The core values that guide The Church Pension Fund in fulfilling its mission are compassion, fiscal stewardship, mutual respect, service and adaptability.
All of the work of The Church Pension Fund emanates from the Two Great Commandments – to love the Lord God with all our heart and all our might and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We are called to care for the Body of Christ – the Church – by providing well for clergy and lay employees who serve the Church. This commitment continues to inspire and guide our work.
