Mission Statement

We are called, gathered and blessed to be a community and instrument of grace for all sheep of the Good Shepherd.

What We Believe

Good Shepherd Lutheran’s beliefs and teachings are rooted in the Bible. Here are some of our central beliefs:

  • Jesus Christ is God’s Son, our Savior, Lord, Teacher and Friend.
  • The Bible is the record of God’s Good News, telling how God reaches out in love to help God’s people and the whole creation.
  • It is by God’s action revealed most clearly in Jesus, that our sins are forgiven, and we are made God’s children.
  • Each person possesses their own particular gifts given through the Holy Spirit and no one is exempt from God’s love.
  • Through baptism, we become members of the Church, which is the Body of Christ. Baptism is open to anyone wanting to receive it, including infants.
  • We confirm that through action of the Holy Spirit (as teenagers in the Rite of Confirmation) we take greater responsibility for living out our faith.
  • Through Confirmation and Affirmation of Baptism, we become voting members of the congregation.

We focus on these faith practices: Prayer, study, worship, inviting, encouraging, serving and giving.
