Vision, Mission, and Purpose
We celebrate life by loving and serving like Jesus!
We exist to welcome you wherever you are on your faith journey, equip you with faith for real life, connect you with others, and send you into the world to serve in the name of Jesus.
Our Four Purposes
Faith Lutheran and Journey in Faith have been called into being by the living Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus gives us our purpose…we don’t create that on our own.
Our vision and mission statements are rooted and grounded in the Word of God. As we go forth to love and serve we do so with the power of the Holy Spirit leading and guiding us.
The Great Commandment Matthew 22:36-40
Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart…soul…and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
The Great Commandment gives us two purposes:
“Love God with all your heart”
- ✝ …to celebrate God’s presence among us.
“Love your neighbor as yourself”
- ✝ …to demonstrate God’s love for all people.
The Great Commission Matthew 28:18-20
Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
The Great Commission gives us two purposes:
- ✝ …to invite others into our fellowship and show the hospitality of God’s people.
“Teach them to observe”
- ✝ …to educate and train all people in God’s Word.
