Jesus Christ- We Are a Christian Church
The person of Jesus Christ is central to all we do; and through Him we have relationship with God and the Holy Spirit.
Relevance - we are a contemporary church
Our goal is to present the message of Christ in a way that is meaningful to regular attenders and comprehensible to outsiders.
Outreach- we are an evangelistic church
Our goal is to reach lost people both near and far and influence our community for righteousness through evangelism, community outreach, service, and missions.
Diversity- we are a unified church
Our goal is to bridge racial, cultural, gender, socio-economic and generational gaps so as to create a community where all people can relate together in a spirit of love and unity.
Together in Jesus Christ we are freed by grace to live faithfully, witness boldly and serve joyfully.
A merger of three Lutheran churches formed the ELCA in 1988. They were The American Lutheran Church, the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches and the Lutheran Church in America.
We trace our roots back through the mid-16th century with the church reforming efforts of Martin Luther. But, yet our denomination seeks to articulate the gospel-centered Biblical truth of life, suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Now 30 years later, the ELCA is a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Christ’s name throughout the world.
