We are a member of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.

Our Philosophy of Misistry is missional.

Jesus said: "Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:20)

We exist for Mission, the penetration of our community with the Word of God.

Our Focus is outward, beyond current membership.

Our Emphasis on seeking dechurched and unchurched individuals and families.

Our Principles are on the Great Commision.

Our Center is love for God and His Word above all else.

The Environment is God's Love, acceptance, and forgiveness. We focus on meeting spiritual needs and spiritual committment.
