Our Mission and Vision
Part of the North American Lutheran Church
CHRIST CENTRED: We confess the apostolic faith in Jesus Christ according to the Holy Scriptures. We affirm the authority of the Scriptures as the authority source and norm, “according to which all doctrines should and must be judged” (Formula of Concord). We accept the ecumenical creeds and the Lutheran Confessions as true witnesses to the Word of God.
MISSION DRIVEN: We believe that the mission of the Church is to preach the Gospel and make disciples for Christ. We believe that making disciples–in our congregations, in our communities and nations, and around the world–must be a priority of the Church in the present age.
TRADITIONALLY GROUNDED: We affirm the ecumenical creeds and the faithful witness of the Church across time and space. We endorse the form and practices of the Universal church that are consistent with Scripture, particularly the office of ministry and the tradition of worship under Word and Sacrament. We seek dialogue and fellowship with other Lutheran churches and with faithful Christians of other confessions.
CONGREGATIONAL FOCUSED: We strive to be a Church that is organized to facilitate the ministries of local congregations in a posture of servant-hood and a spirit of partnership, through the provision of resources, connections and information.
