In Matthew 28:19, Jesus calls us to service and mission with the instructions to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
With this as our guide, Family of God’s mission is “Praising God. Strengthing Families. Serving Community.”
As Lutherans, we believe:
- We are saved by the grace of God alone and not by anything we do.
- Through faith in Jesus Christ alone, our sins are forgiven and we are given the assurance of eternal life.
- The Bible is the only authority for Christian teaching and Christian living.
- All believers in Christ are called to Christian service and all alike are God’s people.
- We celebrate the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.
- We are a congregation that welcomes all who seek God in community. We challenge one another to grow in spirit and compassion and invite all into joyful worship and service wherever we are called. God gathers us each Sunday Morning to sing, hear God’s word, pray, and receive God’s grace through Holy Communion. Gathered, forgiven, and fed by God, we are sent out to be workers with God in the redemption of the world.
