Vision and Afflication
Living Word Lutheran Church is a member of Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC), an association of congregations who are:
- free in Christ
- accountable to one another
- rooted in the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions
- working together to fulfill Christ's Great Commission to go and make disciples of all nations
By God's grace, we are a community of disciples that desire to live out our mission statement of "preaching, teaching and reaching" by growing in the expression of six Biblical marks of discipleship. We invite you to join us in a lifetime of growth as we seek:
PRAY DAILY to be faithful through prayer for all things, without ceasing, in order to grow in faith and understanding of God's will.
WORSHIP WEEKLY to faithfully answer God's call to worship weekly in order to receive God's Holy Word and respond to His teaching with worship that is reverent and rooted in Scripture.
STUDY THE BIBLE to be faithful in the study of God's pure, infallible, Holy Word as the sole and final authority for Christian doctrine. The Word convicts us of our sin and reveals our salvation through Jesus Christ alone. God speaks to us through His living Word, equipping us to bear witness to the truth.
WITNESS TO OTHERS to be faithful instruments of the Holy Spirit, witnessing daily through Scripture to the good news of the gospel. We actively proclaim Jesus Christ as the only way unto salvation so that others may come to faith according to God's will.
BE IN RELATIONSHIPS TO ENCOURAGE SPIRITUAL GROWTH to be faithful to God by fostering relationships with each other in large and small gatherings. Together we strive to love one another in action and truth, bearing each other's burdens and encouraging spiritual growth.
BE A FAITHFUL STEWARD OF TIME, TALENT, AND TREASURE to faithfully praise and glorify God by joyfully using the blessings of time, talent, and treasure. We rejoice with thanksgiving, confident that God will use these gifts to grow His kingdom and abundantly meet our every need.
