What does Our Visual identity represent?
Our core values:
The three columns form an "M" for Morningside, but they also represent our three-fold mission: Loving God; loving each other; loving our world.
The Great Commandment (Deuteronomy 6:5) is to love God with all our heart, soul, and might.
Loving each other
But as New Testament believers, we're called to do that in the context of a local church, where we obey the New Commandment (John 13:34) to love each other.
Loving our world
We are also called to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) to proclaim the Good News of God's love for the world.
The shape of a pentagon pointing up is a signature architectural motif on our campus. You will notice five layers of these upward-directed pentagons on the front of our main building. The front of the old building, now the Spanish lobby, has the same pentagon-shaped window.
The entryway overhangs and main doors to the church have this same pentagon shape. This shape was also used for the current church sign--even the window in the gym.
Just like our steeple, these upward directed pentagons reminds us that everything we do as a local church should be pointing to God and His glory.
The new visual identity retains the exterior circle from our old logo that reminds us that we are a church on mission-- to take the Gospel not just to our own community, but also around the globe.
