Cross and dovesMarked with the cross of Christ forever, we are claimed, gathered and sent for the sake of the world. This is the mission statement of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. As members of the ELCA we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor and to practice our faith by giving our hearts to God and our hands to do the work of serving others in the name of Jesus locally and around the world. We believe we are justified by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8) so we describe mission in terms of what God is doing in the world, not in terms of our own efforts. We seek God’s guidance through the Holy Spirit in all that we do and are confident that God’s loving purposes will be fulfilled when our Lord Jesus Christ returns (1 John 3:2) If you would like to learn more about our mission, contact us.
