Core Values

Our foundation is the Bible, the Word of God that is centered on the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

  • We study God's Word.
  • The Bible is the basis for all teaching and preaching.
  • All decisions for ministry attempt to reflect God's inspired word for our lives.
     

Every person is a child of God.

  • God's love is unconditional.
  • God accepts people as they are.
  • Every person is at a different place in his or her faith journey.
  • We seek to welcome others as Jesus did.
     

We are called to share the Gospel and to grow the church.

  • Every Christian has a unique calling to share the faith as a member of the "priesthood of all believers."
  • We work to reach out to the unchurched.
  • We seek to nurture our youth as a vital part of the church today and in the future.
  • We seek to welcome new people into our family of faith.

Worshiping God as a church community is the primary expression of our faith.

  • We value regular worship opportunities.
  • We uphold the importance of the Word of God in our worship, along with the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.
  • We value worship that is faithful to our Lutheran tradition but maintains relevance to our community and culture

As a church, we are called to be a caring community.

  • We seek the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of our members and others outside our walls.
  • We seek fellowship opportunities to strengthen our community of faith.
  • We seek ways to be in Christian service to one another and God's creation.
     

The Gospel changes lives.

  • We will be different in our family, vocation and community because of our faith.
  • Our spiritual development is a life long journey.  We will be challenged, comforted and shaped along the way.
  • We work to forgive, strengthen, and support those who work alongside of us to communicate God's love.
  • We strive to see the world through the lens of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
