All Saints Sharon Chapel is the cherished home of an open and affirming, racially and ethnically diverse congregation holding steadfast to our best traditions while seeking to explore the spirit and will of God together.
The parish is also honored to provide a home one other congregation, Iglesia de Dios "El Sinai" and benefits from its history with and proximity to Virginia Theological Seminary as it hosts seminarians seeking practical experience with a diverse and active congregation.
Core values are basic beliefs we live by; that give our lives meaning and shape our relationship to the world around us. As Christians, living into our core values always has to do with the person of Jesus Christ, for he is the Word, the expression of God's will for humankind. We asked ourselves, What have we always cared about? Who are we today? What are we called to be tomorrow? After reflection and lengthy discussion, the Vestry determined the following Core Values of All Saints Sharon Chapel:
Diversity & Inclusion
Education & Formation
Family & Belonging

Keep us ever mindful of the deep roots this parish has in our community, and your call to spread the branches of faith ever wider. Empower us, Lord, as we spread your word, and grant us peace, safe harbor, and unity for the sake of your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
