WHO WE ARE

We are a congregation of God's people who strive to welcome everyone into God's presence with open minds, open hearts, open doors, and open hands.  We seek to use our minds to explore God's word, our open hearts & doors to welcome strangers, and our hands to serve our Lord Jesus Christ.  We belong to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) and ALL are welcome in our midst.


OUR CORE BELIEFS

We believe in the Triune God:

  •          God the Father who created the universe
  •          God the Son, Jesus Christ who redeemed us from our sin
  •          God the Holy Spirit, presence of God who empowers us  

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God.  


We believe that the Church, both locally and globally, is the Body of Christ and we are called upon to worship Him, serve Him, love and serve others and share the Good News of Christ with the world.


We identify with the confessions of the Lutheran Church, affirming the centrality of grace alone, faith alone, scripture alone.


We believe in and practice two Sacraments: 

  • Holy Baptism - through which God adopts us as His children and gives us new life
  • Holy Communion - Jesus is truly present in the bread and wine and grants us forgiveness

We believe that all humans are created in God’s image and have worth, value, and dignity.  


We believe in the return of Jesus Christ but emphasize His presence here with us today in the body and blood of communion, in prayer, in His word, and in our fellowship with each other.  We want to inspire all people to love and serve Him each and every day.
