Our Core Values
We value our relationship with the Triune God- God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
- We will work together to help each person grow into a meaningful relationship with God the Father who has created us, with God the Son who has saved us from our sins, and with God the Holy Spirit who works to make us more like Christ (Philippians 3:8)
- We will diligently study God's Word and strive to teach it faithfully in all of our educational endeavors (Psalm 119:105).
- We will strive to provide a variety of meaningful worship experiences for all those who are part of our congregation and for those who do not yet know Christ or have a church home (Psalm 95:6).
- We will make prayer a part of all we do as a congregation and foster opportunities for individual and communal prayer in our life together (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
- We will work together to provide meaningful opportunities for fellowship, study, and Christian growth for all segments of our congregation- women, men, children, youth, and other groups we identify within our fellowship (1 Corinthians 12:24-26).
- The primary mission of the church is to be outwardly focused. We will work together to reach our to all in our community and beyond who have not come into a faith relationship with Christ (John 1:40-41).
- We will take seriously God's call to reach out to those who are experiencing the difficult challenges of life (Matthew 25:37-40).
- We will open ourselves up to the power of God that molds us and shapes us into fully devoted followers of Jesus, and we will encourage other to do the same (Matthew 28:19).
- Forgiveness is the glue that holds the body of Christ together. We will remember that each of us is a forgiven sinner, and we will strive to forgive others as each of us has been forgiven by Christ (Colossians 3:13).
- We will remember that love is what you do. When God wanted to show us love he sent Christ to die for us. We will strive to show God's love for others by giving of ourselves, our time, and our treasure (1 John 3:18).
- Lutheran Christians lift up the Word of God and the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion as the primary means by which God shows us his grace. We will keep the Word and the Sacraments at the center of our life together (Romans 10:17, Romans 6:4, Matthew 26:26-28).
- We believe that each member of the congregation is a minister with spiritual gifts to share so that we might fulfill our mission. We will work to help each member of our congregation find their spiritual gifts and fill their place of service in the body of Christ (1 Peter 2:9).
