Our Mission and Values
In Christ You Matter

Worshipping God as Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer
We believe in a Triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit)

o   Creator – The Father created the world and each of us in his image
o   Redeemer – Jesus came into the world as a sacrifice for our sins
o   Sustainer – the Holy Spirit is with us today to guide and direct us    

Growing Together in Faith and Witness As a community of believers and seekers, we strive to learn the story of God’s plan for our lives.  Through worship services, Bible study and educational opportunities we seek to grow together in personal faith and learn how to apply that faith in our daily lives.   We witness to our faith by speaking to it, inviting others to join us on our journey and in how we live our lives.     

Serving the Community We believe that we are called to serve each other and the community around us.  We work to address the needs of our community neighbors and be a resource for them. 

In Christ You Matter!
A world experiencing the difference God’s grace and love in Christ makes for all people and creation.

We welcome everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, developmental, physical and mental disability.  We believe that everyone matters to God and to us; and so we are a welcoming community for those who want to join us on our journey.    

Our values
Our values are grounded in faith, in our biblical and Lutheran confessional sources and our love of God and neighbor. They speak to the way this church lives and practices our faith, and they will guide how we journey forward in Christ as church together.

Forgiveness and reconciliation

We are reconciled to God by God’s forgiving mercy. Forgiveness and reconciliation flow from what God has made us to be in Jesus Christ and what God is doing with us in the world. As a people of God, we embody forgiveness in speech, action and relationships, and our ministry in reconciliation is foundational.

Dignity, compassion and justice

Each person is created in God’s image. We respect this God-given right to dignity and, inspired by the life of Jesus, show love and compassion for all people. Through proclamation of the gospel, through worship and as servants of God working for healing and justice in the world, we uphold and seek to protect the dignity and human rights of all people.

Inclusion and diversity

As Christ’s church, we value the richness of God’s creation and offer a radical welcome to all people, appreciating our common humanity and our differences. We are a church that does not view diversity as a barrier to unity. We recognize and will challenge dynamics of power and privilege that create barriers to participation and equity in this church and society – for women, people of color, minority ethnic groups, people with disabilities, people who are marginalized or living in poverty, and the LGBTQ community.
