Our guiding statement is a defining phrase, describing who we are as a people of God. We recognize that our hope comes from Christ and Christ's activity on the cross, Christ's death and resurection. We understand that we journey together in that hope, not only as individual people, but as a community, dedicated to sharing that hope with others. We do not claim to have it all figured out. We do not claim to be perfect. What we do claim is that we are part of God's creation and that God's mercy and love is so generous that we wish to share that with all we encounter. We claim that we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as children of God in the world with the help of God.
We as a community of Christian Lutherans recognize that we are saved by grace, it is a gift of God, and that we desire to respond to God's saving actions. As a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the ELCA, we teach, profess and share in the beliefs taught by Martin Luther and in accordance with the ELCA.
