Faith’s Mission Statement:
Sharing God’s Word, Showing God’s Love, & Serving God’s World
Faith’s Vision Statement:
Centered in God’s word, we desire to reach out and welcome all to meaningful worship, fellowship and ministry opportunities where we develop a deeper relationship with God and each other. We strive to nurture disciples empowered to serve the needs of our church family, our communities, and our world.
Faith's Core Values:
Grace - We are saved by the grace of God through faith. God freely extends His grace to all people.
Love - We are to love the Lord our God with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind; and also love our neighbors as ourselves. This is how Jesus summarized the Ten Commandments in Matthew 22, making love the cornerstone of God's law.
Bible - We value opportunities to hear and study God's word in worship, Sunday School, Bible studies, & personal reflection. Faith's church life & ministries are Bible-centered, and our personal faith is nourished through life-long opportunities to hear and study His word.
Worship - We welcome all to our worship services and strive to provide inspirational worship in both traditional and contemporary formats. In worship, we join together to sing praises to God, receive the sacraments, find renewal in spirit, and leave strengthened in spirit to serve God's world.
Prayer - We value regular communication with God for guidance in life and consistently raise the needs of the congregation, community, and world in prayer during worship, through prayer chains, small groups and personal devotions.
Stewardship - As Christians, we are to be good stewards of the gifts God has given us. We strive to generously share our God-given gifts of time, talent and treasure to support the ministries of Faith Lutheran and the greater church.
Youth - We recognize and value youth as the future of our church; therefore, strive to prepare them for discipleship through Christian education, youth ministry opportunities, mentoring, and inspirational worship.
Outreach - To reflect God's mercy and unconditional love for us, we strive to show love and mercy to others through ministries that reach out and serve those in need within our congregation, our community & our world.
Fellowship - The family of Faith seeks to build loving relationships by providing opportunities to gather for fellowship, small group activities, and working together on Faith's ministries.
Hospitality - We seek to be an inclusive community of faith, welcoming all people to participate with us in worship, fellowship, learning, and service. We welcome opportunities to share our church building with the community.
