The Bible, through many examples in both Old and New Testaments, teaches us clearly that God “wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” 1 Tim 2:4. This, therefore, is God’s mission. This mission is necessary because human sin disrupted the harmony that existed originally in God’s creation. God’s plan is to reconcile the world to Himself through Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit has been sent to empower us to work in God’s mission. He sends us to bring the message of salvation to everyone in the world. Thus, God’s mission is our mission. Our mission at Christ Lutheran Church is embodied in the following activities:
WORSHIP – to give honor and glory to the Triune God in prayer, praise and thanksgiving.
NURTURE – to be effective partners of the Gospel through Word and sacraments by the discipline of leaders and edifying of all members, that all may be equipped for their ministries.
FELLOWSHIP – to help each other and our fellow men in word and deed, providing support in accordance with need.
SERVICE – through faithful stewardship, putting God first in service and giving, to help advance the Kingdom of Christ.
WITNESS – to reach out in evangelism, confessing to others our Spirit-given faith that Jesus is Savior and Lord.
Christ Lutheran Church is a Creedal Church. In accordance with the ancient Church, this congregation confesses the three creeds of Christendom:
Creeds are important because they give expression of Biblical teaching. They also keep us in the truth of God’s Word in an age of scepticism and pluralism. The creeds also give direction to the lives of members of Christ Lutheran in faith and life.
