Discipleship...

...Learning and Growing


It's true, we have a lot of fun at Lord of Life. We take great joy in sharing our life together and worshiping God in community. But our purpose as the church (the people of Christ) is to grow toward becoming better disciples of Jesus.

We take the journey of becoming Jesus' disciples seriously. Read on to find out some of the tools and philosophies that help us. And join us... we would love to walk on the path of discipleship with you!

Mission, Vision, and Values


They're three words with distinct meanings. For every ministry of our congregation, every outreach effort, everything in our life together, we start by asking how it fits into our mission, vision, and values.

Mission

To reach people with the love of Jesus Christ.

Vision

Lord of Life Lutheran Church is a community of Christ where we experience God's grace, comfort and acceptance through each other. From here, everyone is empowered to share, teach and give what each has received.

Values

  1. The Gospel calls us to unconditional regard for all people.
  2. Prayer is necessary for our relationship with God, one another, and the world.
  3. Scripture provides the foundation for our lives of faith.
  4. The authority for our ministry is founded in Jesus Christ, the head of the Church which is the Body of Christ on earth. An elected Congregation Council provides administrative authority; our called pastors provide the spiritual authority of the Office of Word and Sacrament Ministry.
  5. Each member is uniquely gifted by God for ministry and is expected to mature in discipleship of Jesus Christ.
  6. Any ministry based on our Mission, Vision and Core Values is valid for our congregation, and may, at any time, evolve or end.

Daily and Weekly Bible Readings


At Lord of Life, we follow the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) for our readings in worship on Sunday. We also encourage use of the RCL for daily devotional readings throughout the week.
