What We Believe

We believe... 

 God loves us all, showing no partiality, through the sacrificing love of Jesus Christ.

 

 We trust in the undeserved grace of God.  

 
 God speaks to all people through His Holy Word
     Jesus, the Word made flesh; 
     the Word made alive in our speaking guided by the Holy Spirit; 
     the Word written in the Bible and inspired by the Holy Spirit
 
God calls and gathers us to be the body of Christ in the world today.
This gathering, the Church, is God's gift to us and to the world.
 
We believe... 

That the first purpose of the Church is to announce the peaceful reign of God in Christ Jesus,
and to share God's Holy Word and Sacraments with all people of every nation and race.
 
That God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed,
Luther's Small Catechism, and the Lutheran Confessions are trustworthy summaries
of the Christian faith.
 
That the Lutheran church is one part of the catholic (universal or Christian) Church,
and that we have a unique calling to help unite and renew the wider Church.
 
Our Values are...
Loving one another as Jesus loves us

 

Living the Gospel (the good news of Jesus' death and resurrection) in our words

and in our deeds

 

Praying in our daily lives, including prayers for the unity and mission of our congregation

 

Reaching spirit led decisions by consensus through discernment in listening, patience

and prayer

 

Speaking out for justice and reaching out with mercy and generosity to all,

especially those who are hurting or lost

 

Providing hospitality - welcoming the stranger and one another as if we were

welcoming Christ Himself

 

Fulfilling our life's purpose by using our God-given gifts with integrity, humility and joy

 

Modeling the Christian life for one another, particularly the children around us

 

Learning Biblical and theological wisdom and habits of faith

 

Supporting one another in faith by cherishing Christian fellowship and fun

 

Sharing God's gifts within our congregation: (TEAM)

     Time

     Energy for service
     Attention to worship and study
     Money for God’s work in the world

 

Our Purpose is...

 

…to call, gather, nurture people of all ages for the callings in daily life
   for which we have been gifted; 
...to build up the Christian home, the primary place of faith formation;
...to worship God in Spirit and in truth;
...and to invite the world into the household of faith through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
