What We Believe


We believe that Faith is a journey and no two individual’s experiences or understanding will be the same. At the same time, we believe that Christ meets each of us where we are and accompanies us along the way. While Christ meets us as individuals, He draws us into community to speak to us through conversation with others and in so doing draws us deeper into Him.

We have a Mission …

First Lutheran Church is called by God to be a welcoming church witnessing to Christ in loving service to the world.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

(Matthew 5:16)

We have a Vision …

We will follow God’s plan for us to grow in faith, service, and community.

I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.

(John 15:5)
