Christ Lutheran Church of Peoria, Illinois is a religious corporation and an Illinois Not for Profit Corporation organized for religious, educational, and charitable purposes. 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 a knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4). This, therefore, is God’s mission. God’s mission is necessary because human sin disrupted the harmony that existed originally in God’s creation (Romans 3:23). God’s plan is to reconcile the world to himself through Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:10; Acts 4:12). The Holy Spirit has been sent to empower us for work in God’s mission (Acts 1:8; John 14:16). God now sends us to bring the message of salvation to everyone in the world (John 20:21; Matthew 28:18-20). Thus, God’s mission is our mission (1 Peter 2:9). Our mission at Christ Lutheran Church is embodied in the following ministry activities:
Christ Lutheran Church will continue its Christ-centered, life-directed focus, responding to the needs of its members, emphasizing local and worldwide witness and acting as a catalyst for the improvement of the neighborhood.
