We Are . . .

We  Are  Evangelical

We are part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) fellowship.  We center our worship, proclamation, and community life and service on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Because God created us in love, rescued us through the cross of Jesus, and gives us the Spirit of peace, we are free to love, to give, to serve and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We Are A Christian Community.

We embrace and celebrate the traditions of the Church across the ages, composed of many languages, cultures, and nations. While we are Lutheran, we claim the rich diversity of the universal Church. Our celebration of the Word of God and the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion in worship and song unites us with the larger gathering of all people whose faith centers in Jesus Christ.

We Are Reforming.

We believe that God has saved us once and for all through the Cross. We know we are not perfect. We renew our faith and press on to live our lives consistent with God’s Word. Through our many ministries, we look for meaningful ways to share the Good News of Jesus’ love.

All Are Welcome.

Jesus embraced all who wanted to believe with open arms just as they were. All who are disciples, or who wish to be disciples, of Jesus Christ may enter into our fellowship regardless of their current or past religious beliefs or traditions and regardless of where they are in their faith journey.  We all stand together at the foot of the cross, knowing that each person is a child of God, with unique gifts  to offer.
