  Our Mission is to be connected with Christ Jesus and that He uses
  us to bring others to meet HimWe carry out Christ's mission by
     ∙
proclaiming the Word of God.
     the administration of the Sacraments.
     religious instruction of youth and adults according to the doctrinal
       standard of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
     ∙
fostering Christian fellowship and charity.
 
  WE BELIEVE the entire Bible is the Word of God, given by
  inspiration of the Holy Spirit.  The Bible is the only source for our
  teachings and beliefs.

  WE BELIEVE all people are sinners and sin separates us from God.

  WE BELIEVE the Good News, that God, through His Son, Jesus
  Christ reconciled the world to Himself.  Jesus died and rose again on
  Easter morning in order to pay the penalty for sin and free us from it's
  power.  This forgiveness and new life is offered to everyone.  It is
  received by faith as a free gift from God.

  WE BELIEVE Baptism and Holy Communion are means by which
  the Holy Spirit of God comes to His people to create and nourish
  faith.

  WE BELIEVE although we are not perfect, we are forgiven in Christ.

  WE BELIEVE worship is important and Christian people need to
  worship the Lord with other Christians.

  WE BELIEVE those who believe in Jesus as the Son of God and
  Savior of the world will live forever in the presence of God.

  WE BELIEVE the grace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ should
  permeate throughout all our congregational dealings, teachings, and
  worship.
